What a difference 20 years of therapy, self-reflection and prayer makes. If you told me during my first year of college that I would be sharing a personal story about my mental health and experience during the trial 20 years later at UC San Diego, I would've laughed in your face. Then referred you to a therapist.
I especially wanted to give this talk because many people have been on edge since the election. The racial climate, rumors, constant breaking news and tension remind me a of how I felt during the trial, but worse. I shared ways we can take care of ourselves during this time.
I'm working on bringing this talk to other campuses and conferences. If you work at a college, university, organization or know someone who does email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more here.
