World Suicide Prevention Day

With a 35% increase in Suicide rates in the US between 1999 and 2018, the CDC calls suicide a growing public health concern …

I am not an expert, heck i didn’t even think I need to understand the workings of the human mind because biology & I are peaceful enemies. There’s no denying it, but there truly is no health without mental health.

Mental health … sounds like such a complicated phenomenon. It’s really not. For me It’s just you as you are. How are you feeling today? Because at the core of it all, we are all just human; we all process feelings and emotions arising from daily experiences.

At 8:00pm today, September 10, 2020 please light a candle on your window, for those we have lost, for those we almost lost, and all those we have to protect from losing.

MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE & YOGA INSTRUCTOR I'm Ney, from Tanzania, currently living and teaching Yoga in the DMV - Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. I'm also the Co-founder & Chief Operations Officer of a nonprofit in Tanzania called Tap Elderly Women’s Wisdom for Youth - TEWWY. I started practicing Yoga to manage my debilitating anxiety; and it has since transcended to fuel my passion for Social Justice. TEWWY, a mental health stakeholder in TZ, facilitates psychosocial interventions by bridging the intergenerational gap through training elderly retired women in Interpersonal Counseling. The grandmotherly Wisdom&Wellness Counselors (WWCs) provide mental health services, support and resources to their underserved communities. The WWCs facilitate Wisdom&Wellness Circles, safe-spaces for people to share & care beyond what meets the eye as they build community. I teach Yoga as a radical tool in creating just and sustainable communities through the promotion of mental health & wellness. As we integrate the practice of Yoga in TEWWYs Mental Health Intervention Programs, we are building communities that are well equipped to adapt to change and cope with adversity. If you would like to be a part of our Wisdom&Wellness Community, let’s connect below.
