What does Black Mental Wellness mean to you?

Black Mental Wellness is all about breaking down so many of the barriers that the black community faces in order to achieve optimal health. Many of us have been raised up under similar house rules such as "what happens in this house, stays in this house." This alone is a statement that hinders our community from seeking additional help and resources such as counselors/therapists.

How do you promote change and well-being in the Black community?

Most recently I promote change within the community by becoming the Author of A Kids Book About Suicide. My goal was to help adults start the conversation about suicide. Kids already know what it is but often times we are nervous to have the conversations. This book is a great way to start that dialogue. It also encourages the kid that may have lost someone to suicide or the kid that struggles with suicidal ideation informing them that they have purpose in this big world.

What are some upcoming events you are leading, that promote mental health and wellness, that you would like for our Black Mental Wellness audience to know about?

I mainly want your audience to know about the book. I plan to have an author Q & A soon and that will be shared on my page @AngelaNicole_F as well as my website

Tell us about your educational and/or professional training, and current area of expertise related to mental health and wellness?
