Former Mrs. Fargo speaks about mental illness and her suicide attempts at Hjemkomst Center
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Mental illness can affect anyone, including the people who "appear to have it all together."
That's a message the former Mrs. Fargo, and now Mrs. Montana International, is spreading.
She did so Friday at an event at the Hjemkomst Center.
She shared her story of adoption and the struggles in finding an identity because of it.
After dealing with depression, she says she couldn't handle life and attempted suicide
“I attempted with a pill overdoes. It was a big cry for help. And I didn't die, thank goodness. God had a plan for me,” said Dukart.
The proceeds from Friday's event go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
