As a Mental Health Advocate and Educator, I speak about the prevalence of mental health issues in our community and the importance of collaborating with Pastors and Clergy members to reduce stigma, strengthen faith and foster healing and deliverance. I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve in this capacity.
Recent speaking engagements include guest speaker and presenter for Payne and Glory, Inc. of Symrna, GA and community health fair participant and mental health screener sponsored by Redeeming Light Center Church of Eatonville, FL. Each week I conduct live presentations about topics specific to mental health issues that impact the African American community, as well as topics that support mental health and ministry collaboration. I currently facilitate empowerment and enrichment groups for individuals and families impacted by a mental health diagnosis. These groups provide a confidential and safe environment for individuals and families to receive support, exchange information and resources and network without fear of stigma.
