I am her and she is me. I wonder which me today I'll be...

See, I don't always know the source and intention by which the words of others were created, but I do know the feeling of resonance in my soul. A big part of moving forward while dealing with depression (and anxiety) was accepting it for what it was, rather than fighting so hard to push it away. I started to find reasons to give the darkness gratitude (definitely not an easy thing to do). But I often thought about the fact that seeds are/must be buried in dirt and darkness, before they blossom abundantly yielding fruits or flowers. Aside from spiritual references, the main reason I was deeply attracted to the lotus flower was the conditions in which it grew. Before the onset of the first bout of depression almost 10 years ago, I primarily operated my life in "light and love". But as a being who seeks depth, meaning & wisdom, this experience has been/is the offering of all those things. Because indeed, the "alleluia" moments of growth are not only experienced in the light.

I am a champion of women! This week is #maternalmentalhealthweek and I'm excited to bring stories, resources, selfcare tips and mental health techniques for moms that make this transition into and throughout Motherhood easier for us all. Motherhood isn't always a walk in the park for so many women. Women of color are disproportionately affected by post partum depression, anxiety, mood disorders, a lack of resources along with the highest infant mortality rates of ANY OTHER race. It's time to discuss this and create spaces for women to get help. You are not alone. We are in this together. Check in on your "new" Mom and "old" Mom friends and family. #maternalmentalhealth #motherhoodinmotion #clinicalsocialworker #help #support #postpartumsupport #birthdisparities #blackwomen #womenofcolor #birth #babies #4thtrimester #minoritymentalhealth #blackwomenandmentalhealth #resources #village #pregnancy #mentalhealth #therapy #depression #anxiety #bipolardisorder #ppd #ppa #psychosis #mania

No more being silent about our struggles. Post partum depression and anxiety is REAL in black communities. Black women have less access to mental health care, are often not screened by medical providers and overlooked for support groups. This is why I've dedicated the second half of my career to empowering black women to seek treatment for PPD/PPA. We are suffering, our babies are suffering and we don't have to. #blackwomen #mentalhealth #motherhoodinmotion #motherhood #mentalhealth #blackwomenandmentalhealth #mentalhealthdisparities
