About the Event
Growing up as a Black girl in church with depression, thoughts of suicide, and anxiety, where mental health was not truly understood in either space I grew up feeling very lonely and isolated.
At home I was hearing "Black people don't deal with those things" and at church i heard "pray about it, believe".
Mental Health has become a more prevalent concern among youth and many adults are lost on how to respond without more hurt and offense. As a pastor or youth leader, youth teacher, you likely have not had much training about trauma, depression, anxiety, and other mental health struggles that are bound to walk into your care.
I cannot make you a mental health expert but I can help you create a safer environment for your youth that encourages healthy mental wellness. I am here to give you the education that the ones before you did not have so that the youth in your ministry don't leave feeling more broken and hurt, but instead leaving feeling more whole (3 John 1:6).
