I was frustrated in 2021 when I became mentally, physically, and spiritually exhausted until I could no longer function. I was an emotional train wreck! I struggled with depression from my teenage years and onward without realizing it. In fact, I was unaware of depression or its effect on a person and went on to believe that “it is what it is.” I channeled my feelings by keeping busy. However, it was in 2021 that took me to a heightened degree of depression; although I understood the disorder better by this time, I could ask for help to control my emotions. The mental health crisis is profound, and I can draw from my own experience and education.

When I started this non-profit, I wanted to help children by helping their mothers live a better quality of life. My convictions increased the desire to help all to heal and rebuild to get back on the road to recovery. I hope New Life Community Outreach can make a difference in your communities. We invite everyone into honest and unfiltered conversations on personal and progressive topics that will lead to your healing process. Please tell me what topic(s) you are interested in hearing more about or would like to comment on.
