"After attempting suicide and being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I set the mission to end the mental health stigma. No one should have to suffer in silence especially at work. Employees should feel comfortable speaking about their challenges and gain support to excel at work."

"I live with depression and attempted suicide and shortly after being released from the hospital, I started working with T-Kea. I felt like she understood me. She listened and encouraged me. I can relate to her story and can tell that she really cares about the work she does. I recommend T-Kea if you struggle with your mental health. She is the perfect Peer Counselor to work with."
