Mental Health Advocate

I was honored to be the Keynote Speaker alongside The Ontario Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, Michael A. Tibollo. I've spoken on stages across North America and my life mission is to remove stereotypes and myths about mental illness. Being an advocate is important to me because I believe the only way we’re going to remove the judgment and discrimination surrounding mental illness is by sharing our stories. I was diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder back in 2007 and it totally took over my life. The journey was a long road to recovery but now I have the tools to manage a healthy balanced life. I have published 3 books on mental health, Shame Over for men's mental health, Pandemic to Peace and A Fresh Start available on Amazon, Toronto Eaton Centre, Indigo Chapters and in Toronto District and York Region High Schools. I was featured in Hollywood EverTalk TV and helped develop 22 workshops and launched 3 pilot programs helping large organizations such as The Canadian Women's Foundation, Roots Community Services, and The Heal Network Catholic Family Services during the global pandemic helping communities have open conversations around mental health.

A Black Man's Voice launched in 2018 and Speak Up was launched during the global pandemic. These monthly sessions allow my guests openly share their emotions in a safe judgment free zone. After each session complimentary therapy is offered for men who identify as black.
