OK, so I have no idea what I am doing nor do I actually know what a blog is but I thought I'd try it out. It is my goal to try to reach as many people as I can so that communities can change how they view mental health treatment. For many years mental health has been something that people don't speak about. I know for me growing up in the African American community it was only talked about when someone realizes that they may be able to get a check for it. As I aged, I realized that there was not only silence surrounding the issues of mental health but there was mistrust and fear of getting treatment. It is my goal as a clinician and a advocate of the mental health field to change the way you view mental health and to help community members get the therapy they need.
