“I found that with depression, one of the most important things you can realize is that you’re not alone. You’re not the first to go through it; you’re not going to be the last to go through it,” — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
💚There are tons of people worldwide suffering; I remember being so ashamed to speak about it because my family called me crazy!
💚Being diagnosed with a mental illness doesn’t mean you’re crazy, nor does it mean you don’t pray or believe in God!
💚I’m glad I sought help, I’m glad I get a chance to interact with others who are suffering too!!
Get educated, get the help you need, or if you know someone who suffers…be there💚
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,
