Today I Shared My Story!

Going Mental, lol I love this!! Yes, today I went a little mental and was telling everyone I could about mental illness and my journey. Today I opened up to some of the teachers at my school, and some parents. To my surprise a parent who was going through a divorce opened up and spilled her guts. I was so happy to share my journey with her and give her some advice, I explain to her it was nothing to be ashamed of and we all go through it. This was the first Monday that I’ve felt good in a while, I threw myself into work and some projects to get the kids ready for the afternoon. My brain was free and clear from all negative thoughts! Yay me, small steps folks, small steps. Hope you all are in full force spreading the word, and it’s ok if you get a little mental for a bit. Chat soon………

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, ๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญ ๐Ÿ’‹
