Author and mental health advocate Dr. Selena Bass used her personal trauma of losing a child to enlighten the virtual audience of the Mindful Intervention Natural Development (M.I.N.D.) program. Joined by therapist Merland Baker, the two experts enlightened everyone on everything from recognizing grief and suicide prevention to motivation to building a new life. “Almost 85% of my clients feel that just being able to tell their trauma is a start to their mental health and suicide recovery journey,” said Baker.
The program also included television program interviews with I’m a Star Foundation, Step-by-Step Foundation and social services advocates who benefited from the collaborative grant featuring local agencies and experts designed to eradicate suicidal thoughts in adolescent, teenagers and adults.
The grant was created and awarded to increase inner motivation, meditation, generational behavioral discussions through forward thinking, action versus reaction and the emotional, psychological, and social well-being advocacy that can elevate how we think, feel, and act.
