Suicide Prevention Week 2017

#throwbackthursday to a time not so long ago when suicide was a common thing on my mind. Constant hospital visits, drinking, and  destructive behavior. But God had more faith in me than I did. All wounds are not visible, most of the time there inside our heads. So He kept me around to share my story, to save at least one person from this tragedy. Help someone today, don’t judge, stop the stigma!! Suicide sees no race, gender, or income status. It can happened to the best of us!!! Seeking help doesn’t make you weak! Taking meds doesn’t make you weak!!! Get the help you need for you and your love ones!!!

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’‹
