This is going to sound outrageous but if you've ever sought mental health services in Toronto you will not be shocked by what I am about to say.

Okay, I may have fooled you a bit! This isn't necessarily a blog post as much as it is a preview of whats to come this February. Sorry, it's just been such a hectic week at the 9to5 and in regular life, with Bell Let's Talk and attending events. I'm still getting a hang of … Continue reading Being Black with a Mental Illness
I know everyone is super focused on 2019 and #goals and so am I but I think it is also important to reflect on 2018 and have a hard look at what made it successful or a disaster.
