In the midst of darkness and chaos, you can choose how you will live and respond to your circumstances. No matter what I went through, I kept my head in the books and I made dreams and goals for myself to keep my mind positive from a very young age.
Thank you so much for watching this video were I share my brief testimony of life of recovery and wellness from Bipolar Disorder. July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. Fellow NAMI Ambassador Taraji P. Henson said, "Most people who suffer from mental illness suffer in silence, especially people of color. They don’t want to be labeled, further demonized, or rendered inadequate."
This is soooooo true!!!
The stigma surrounding mental illness is so strong that mental illness is one of society's last taboo topic.
To heal, survive and thrive I have been an NAMI Ambassador sharing my story of recovery and coping strategies for the last 11 years through NAMI NYC Metro's In Our Own Voice Program. I have shared my story in psych wards, on radio, internet radio, sirius xm, hospitals, universities, colleges, schools, non-profits, and for profit companies with over 20,000 people throughout the United States
On July 13th, NAMI NYC Metro held a phenomenal event in Harlem for education and support for the community and specifically people of color. I was honored to be a presenter at the conference and share my story that you just watched.
