Today is such a glorious day, welcome to the month of May! Today kicks of National Mental Health Awareness Month which is an electrifying time because it nudges people to discuss and learn about mental health. These 31 days provide a platform for people who don’t normally share and encourages us regulars to grind harder. With that being said, your girl is providing you some mental health gems daily on social media. So if you haven’t joined the #ResilientFamily on social media, now is the time-Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Website- you name it- I’m on it!
Here will be the safe space to keep a repository of all the information I share across my various social media platforms daily.
