Philadelphia, PA, May 27, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- "Black Therapists Rock: A Glimpse Through the Eyes of Experts" seeks to end the mental health stigma in Black communities. Since trauma is healed better collectively, each author shares personal accounts of depression, abuse, grief, and other forms of trauma that is often ignored in the community. The authors’ vulnerability gives hope to people with similar experiences. Nicole’s chapter reveals childhood memories of her mom’s depression that ended with her lifeless body lying next to her at age 8. Co-author, Daphne Fuller shares how her struggle with self love, identity, depression and anxiety impacted her life and led to a pattern of unhealthy relationships, the separation from self and the journey back.
