On May 19th Stronger Than My Struggles brought to Baltimore a much needed discussion on invisible mental and emotional illnesses in the Black community.

We had 5 panelists including successful Black women with Autism, Depression, Anxiety Disorder, PTSD and who have survived a suicide attempt and military sex trauma. We also had a licensed mental heal professional on hand to help us understand these illnesses, their underlying causes and how to live productively with them.

Our Keynote speaker was René Brooks, leading Black woman ADHD Blogger , creator of Black Girl, Lost Keys and Healthline Contributor.
