What does mental health mean to you? What keeps you going?

This month is mental health awareness for the BIPOC community. As a woman formerly incarcerated, recovering from a 30 active addiction and a survivor of complex trauma; my life supersedes the statistics. Today, I work to build a safe space for others to live and to heal. I am an initiated Yoruba Priestess and I walk in my purpose -giving back to a world I spent many years trying to destroy. I am a mother of two amazing young women, five beautiful grandchildren and a very large and diverse community that loves and respects me. I work intentionally to create a safe space for others to heal as what I have learned is that addressing mental health concerns is uncomfortable for many BIPOC folks and we must continue to do the work collectively, and intentionally.
