Author and mental health advocate, Felicia Johnson, joins us to discuss her own experience in dealing with a loved one suffering from child abuse, depression and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Inspired by her own life story and the journey of her childhood friend, Felicia has authored the novel, Her, which is the story of a young girl dealing with BPD. Through her book, Felicia helps to bring understanding of BPD within reach of many young people and families afflicted by it and continues to help many come to terms with mental health issues they face.

As a survivor of child abuse and one who deals with mental illness in her personal and work life, Felicia is very involved in efforts to end the stigma of mental illness.

In other ways, Kristen is not like other kids her age. She knows something is wrong with her. Kristen feels like an utter failure. She is unable to please her abrasive mother, and scared to confront Jack, her abusive stepfather. She is also unable to protect Nick from Jack, making her fell all the more helpless. Adding to her problems, she knows she will never be as beautiful as her best friend Lexus. Kristen finds solace in self-injury, and the company of Mr. Sharp, her imaginary friend who encourages her feelings of self-loathing.

After a failed suicide attempt, Kristen is placed in the Bent Creek mental hospital, where she is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. While in the hospital, she meets a group of peers suffering with their own mental illnesses, and a compassionate staff of doctors and counselors. From there, Kristen begins her journey to survival. She discovers the circumstances that brought her to this breaking point, struggles to understand her mental illness, and fights to be a survivor against her own worst enemy: her self-blame.
Kristen’s tale of endurance illustrates the complex illness of Borderline Personality Disorder. Readers – including those suffering from BPD and their friends and family – can glean insight into the illness from Kristen’s humanity. Her story is an example of how, if we try to push the past away, we are either doomed to repeat it or let it haunt us to our graves.

Empowering Our Youth: Journaling and Writing Speaking Engagement Testimonials

books writing

Again, I’d like to say thank you to a group of North Atlanta youth mentors and advocates at LPYG for inviting me to speak to a wonderful group of brilliant kids who are on their way to becoming amazing young writers! I had so much fun speaking and answering questions about how journaling can jump start your writing career. That day, I handed out journals as keepsakes for the children to start writing in their own personal journals. They seemed to be delighted with their gifts. Some of them began writing in their journals immediately! I was overwhelmed by the welcoming atmosphere and the keen interest of the children as I spoke to them about my own personal experience with journaling and how keeping journals had helped me to produce and publish my first novel. Read more about this event here:

Here are testimonials from the the boys and girls and staff:

“It was nice of Miss Felicia to bring us journals. I am going to write in my journal every day because I want to write a book about my life one day.” Shimaya age 14

“I found the session to be educational and fun. I learned that it’s important it keep your journal private so that you can write anything you want inside of it. I never thought that I would want to write in a journal, but it seems like it’s worth a try. ” Jonathan age 15

“The best thing that I can say about Miss Felicia is that she made me feel like anything is possible! Like if I want to write a book, I can and if I want to help inspire other people like me, I can do that. Listening to her story was very encouraging. Some of us go through a lot, but when you do your best, you can do anything.” Kelly age 14

“I was touched by her story and I think that anyone who can get through hard times and stand up and talk to other people to help them are brave. She helped me to appreciate that lot of us have had hard times but when we make a choice to do the right thing, we don’t have to go down that bad route. We can take a path to choose to do good things, like write and journal and help others.” DK age 14

“I’m going to write in my journal as much as I can so that I don’t forget the good memories. Like when Miss Felicia said that she wrote in her journal to remember her friend who had died. I don’t want to forget how she helped us and brought the journals for us. That was one of the nicest things anyone has done. I don’t want to forget this.” Victoria age 15

“Thank you, Felicia, for coming to our little space to speak to our kids. You have made a tremendous impact with your sisterly warmth, kindness, and generosity. I am sure that the kids have thoroughly enjoyed you speaking with them today. We hope that you will come back and visit us again soon!” Sharon K. – Youth Advocate and Mentor

Happy Winter! Best wishes to you this holiday season!

love always

Hello friends! The winter season has begun. As the days seem to be darker and the air a bit colder, let’s keep in mind that it’s just the season. We can choose to keep our light shining bright within ourselves and share the warmth of love and caregiving with others. The winter season is hard for me because of the short days and dreary clouds. However, I choose to eliminate negativity to enable positivity for myself and to share with others. Remember to love always and love deeply with sincerity. It will come back to you either way.
