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 look forward to speaking at your next event to help spread awareness and stop the stigma.

Black Men Speak Up monthly sessions is a place where men can openly share their pain in a safe judgment free zone.

Each session is facilitated by Karen Carrington who has interviewed hundreds of men worldwide, authored a book for men's mental health and is best known for her expertise in the emotional well being of men.


After each session, Shane the Counselor from Roots Community Services Inc offers free additional support for men who identify as black. His contact info is
