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. I’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, 𝓞𝓵𝓲𝓿𝓲𝓪 𝓑. 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓹𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓭 💋

  1. This is a good article, although towards the end it made me wonder if it was sponsored by that app. Still, with or without an app, mindfulness and being aware of what the heck we are doing is the best way to SEE what we are doing and if we want this next action to happen–good luck to us all!

    1. My thoughts exactly, I have been using mindfulness lately in my life and I must admit becoming more aware, has done really great things for me!

      1. I think it is so much easier said than done sometimes, since we have internet and jobs and life and tv and it can be a blur of going fast or wishing for the past or future. Good for you for watching your self and seeing what it does.

      2. I pretty much had to or I would have been dead. I do see clearly now, and much thanks to my therapist for putting me on this path!
