You can pray AND see a therapist at the same time

As we know mental illness is still a very taboo subject in the black community. Not only are many African Americans not willing to speak on it, but a lot find it to be a personal weakness. "Black people don't go to therapy we pray about it" or "depression is a weakness, stop complaining about your life" is thrown out there a lot. I have come up with a plan to help educate the black community more on mental illness. Starting April 24th I am offering two classes: "You can pray and see a…See More

“Just pray about it” - Ignoring mental health is killing black youth

Stumbling into adulthood often causes black youth to become more hyperaware of the fact that that even as children, we were constantly fed the narrative that we are less human than any other demographic. From day one we were taught that we could speak, but not too loudly because we already take up too much space. We could feel, but not too deeply as to not be a threat- We are even taught to grieve quietly because any sign of emotional weakness is effectively labeled as ‘for white people’ and…See More

Mental health: setting boundaries in a relationship is a matter of survival

Identifying and setting personal boundaries, in any type of relationship, is a healthy and necessary measure of self-care. Boundaries that set your limitations or mark your standards for treatment and communication with others. In my experience, many of us don’t know how to set boundaries until these boundaries have been crossed. Survivors of abuse, like myself, can thrive in healthy future relationships by being in touch with the behaviors and red flags that are detrimental to our well-being,…See More
