On Story Telling
“I believe our stories are powerful to the healing process. Sharing stories, ideas, and experiences can bring a sense of familiarity to the untold stories passed down by different generations that have caused undue hardships. Storytelling is healing. I care deeply in sharing my experiences, both professional and personal, in hopes of relating to those who are suffering in silence and educating professionals in the field of mental health. I want to create a safe space for understanding past experiences, the importance of self-care, and learning how to be the greatest version of oneself. Practicing self-care daily and creating a system of self-care habits add to the necessary balance of personal and work life. I have created a toolkit of different self-care tips and habits to help in creating such habits.”- Natalie Mena
