I started dieting on May 15, 2020. Welcome to my journey.

I recently learned that my 2nd cousin committed suicide. His mother and one other person found him shot dead in his bedroom. When I was in college completing my first degree, a friend of mine was found hanged in his dorm room.

In my dark ages, I too contemplated suicide and prepared to swallow a bottle full of anti-psychotic prescription pills. I understand how suicide can seem like a viable option in the face of lingering depression and overwhelming life challenges.

How did I overcome my most recent battle (a twenty-two day stay in a psychiatric ward)? I read a book I had published before being hospitalized.

Order Shine: A Woman of Purpose by Shenica Graham

Experience a life changing testimony. Overcome your struggle with mental illness to become a woman of purpose.

Now, I am on a mission to help those suffering with mental illness and those who are plagued by suicidal thoughts, to recover from the broken heart and mind. I am going to use My Psych Teacher University to create positive changes in the lives of the mental health community.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), about 48.3 million adults in the U.S. alone have some form of mental health condition each year. If you are struggling with a mental health issue, it is important to seek help now from a doctor, psychologist, or mental health practitioner.

GET HELP NOW: If you or someone you know may be contemplating suicide, help exists. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or take part in the Lifeline Chat online 24/7.
