So the Journey Begins

Hola and welcome!

My name is Brittany Nicole, and I am the creator of the creator of MindMyMelanin. MindMyMelanin is a black mental health blog welcoming but not exclusively for people of color. Regardless of your reason for discovering my blog, I am blessed that you did. Mental health awareness is a topic that will no longer be silenced, ignored, and minimized. It is as real and significant as any other medical diagnosis. And just because we cannot see it does not make it nonexistent. As a Caribbean-Hispanic black woman, I have allowed and enabled my culture to overpower my cries for help. We did not address having an “ill mind” growing up. Being a woman of color living in a world where mental health is silenced… I choose to make some noise. Here is my journey.

Xoxo,

MindMyMelanin
