COUNSELING AND CONSULTING

Breaking the Barriers of Mental Health
Breaking The Barriers of Mental Health foundation empowers communities to speak openly about mental health concerns and hopes to increase the number of people who will talk to someone or a mental health professional. Breaking the Barriers of Mental Health has hosted free panel discussions/think tanks as a forum for people to speak freely about their encounters or potential encounters with mental illness. The monthly functions have received a resounding amount of recognition from the local mental health community, students and those who want to explore ways that encourage living a well life. Each month we seek to break the barriers of mental health brick by brick.
​5th Annual BTBOMH Brunch
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and as a Mental Health Counselor and Public Speaker Brandy J. Flynn is dedicated to spreading the word that mental health is a topic that everyone should care about.  She will do so by  hosting the 5th Annual Breaking The Barriers of Mental Health Brunch in Memphis, TN on Saturday May 26, 2018 at The Great Hall located at 1900 S. Germantown Rd. Germantown, TN. from 11:30a - 2:00p​​
This annual event has proven itself to be the premiere event providing insight on mental illness, education and awareness in the Greater Memphis area.  This year's theme is PIECES OF ME. In recent times attitudes towards mental health concerns and navigating through life effectively without distraction appears to be changing partly because of events like this one.
