As a co-author in Black Therapists Rock: A Glimpse Through the Eyes of Experts, we seek to end the mental health stigma in Black communities. Since trauma is healed better collectively, each author shares personal accounts of depression, abuse, grief, and other forms of trauma that oftentimes go ignored in the community. The authors’ collective vulnerability gives hope to people with similar experiences. Nicole writes a revealing chapter recalling her own harrowing childhood experiences with a clinically depressed mother who had lost her will to live, leaving behind her five children, all of whom were under the age of thirteen. She shares the intimate details of her life that led her to be an 8 year-old motherless child, and the impact it had on her when she saw her mother’s dead body lying next to her.
