My Mission

My mission for this mental health blog is to reduce the stigma surrounding black women’s mental health and wellness. Women wear various amount of hats. Sometimes we unwillingly take on other hats in life. Women constantly have a mind full of growing tasks from these roles they take on. These can cause unwanted mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress, and more. However, these mental challenges do not have to make women reach their breaking points. This is where I aim to use my personal experiences managing my diagnosed mental health disorders as a life example. Currently I live with bipolar disorder, depression, PTSD, anxiety, ADHD, and suicidal ideation. I use these to encourage women, especially black women of color to prioritize their mental health and wellness.

I am not a licensed mental health professional. This means that this blog is not a substitute for professional medical or mental health information, diagnosis, or treatment from true mental health professionals. However, I believe using my life experiences shows women how to be rooted in realistic and applicable wellness practices. This allows them to live full lives while caring for their mental health.

My Vision

My vision is that MindFULLy Well Rooted becomes a way of life for hundreds of thousands of African American women. Women from various walks of life will come together with different stories to tell about their mental health. I intend to offer this growing community honest and bold stories. These stories come my personal experiences that will further raise mental health awareness. These experiences include my past, present, and future which are known by God. I pray that the women as well as other visitors can find a part of themselves in this mental health blog. Ultimately, what each person finds will bring them unbreakable hope. A hope of being included in the group of people living, surviving, and thriving despite having mental health challenges.

Why A Mental Health Blog

In early 2020, I began working towards becoming a mental health blogger. I wanted to share stories about my pregnancy and postpartum journey. Sharing stories about my health care is a form of therapy about the joy, chaos, love, and unbelievable moments during those times.

I chose to launch MindFULLyWellRooted.com as a mental health blog as a means to share my mental health experiences during both my pregnancy and postpartum journeys. This space on the internet started because I did not having the best family support. In addition, no healthy coping mechanisms while battling anxiety, postpartum depression, and psychosis. It began as the seed of all the support I desperately craved from some of my family members and loved ones while struggling with those mental health issues.

In addition, I specifically started MindFULLy Well Rooted with a purpose built on a specific minority mental health community of black women who can share their various mental health journeys in confidence! As a black mental health blog it is urgent to make this a place of welcoming community. Here in this community, women from all walks of life can sit at a perfectly designed table. Stimulating conversations begin at this table. Most importantly this table is a support group where strangers can become lifelong friends!

The Evolution of This Black Mental Health Blog

MindFULLy Well Rooted eventually became a sort of coping mechanism. I began to share the additional parts of my life as a mom and wife. The responsibilities of wearing those two hats alone have played key factors in my day-to-day mental health. I felt a sense of urgency to show how I prioritize my mental health while handling the demands of motherhood and marriage. Now MindFULLy Well Rooted has become a mental health awareness, faith, and a little bit of lifestyle blog. This space exists to transform the ways women prioritize their mental health as a means of overwhelming prevention that can come from taking care of themselves and wearing numerous hats.

Compared to other blogs about mental health, I share a variety of thought-provoking posts that have a foundation built on dismantling the mental health stigma amongst black women and women in general. I also provide faith-based mentally life-saving resources and strategies. I create these to help other women have access to things I did not have after I experienced my first anxiety attack at the age of 11. My blog posts include personal mental health stories and fact-based research. My post are written to resonate with women who can identify with being rooted in Christ, immersed in motherhood, committed to marriage, and everything else in between.
