Civil Rights Movement 2020

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE. This is the slogan circulating social media as I speak. Los Angeles, San Jose, Oakland, NYC,Atlanta, Minneapolis, Memphis, Louisville. The list continues. I posted yesterday about the importance of African American mental health support in a time when we are… Continue Reading “Civil Rights Movement 2020”

Mental Health And African-American LIves

There was not a Mental Health Month post on Thursday for Somatic Disorders as I anticipated, not because I ran out of time but because my mind has been engrossed in other disturbing realities and going-ons in America. I will do a post on… Continue Reading “Mental Health And African-American LIves”

Mental Health Month: Update #2

For others that means a more than comfortable income, a full-time job, a family, and spare time to… Continue Reading “What Does Stability Look Like For You?”

February’s Scheduled Mental Breakdown

I like that I’ve already failed in keeping up with my scheduled posts. If I’m actually consistent with a goal I set, someone call 911 because my identity has been stolen. This will be a short post and not research based. I’ll try and… Continue Reading “February’s Scheduled Mental Breakdown”

Are People With Mental Health Issues More Creative?
