Hello there world! My name is Tanasia Kenney and I’m the founder & creator of Anxious Black Girl, an online blog dedicated to the destigmatization of mental health issues in the Black community.
As a young woman battling anxiety since college (and probably before then), I know how hard it is managing the ups and downs of a mood disorder — and then delivering a play–by–play of your latest meltdown to loved ones who may not completely understand what you’re going through. Luckily, I have a FANTABULOUS support system. Not everyone does, however, forcing many to suffer in silence.
So, I created this page for you AND me. Feel free to laugh, cry and share your personal experiences as I spill the beans on my own journey to mental wellness. One of the most important lessons I’ve learned is that you’re not alone, and things can and do get better.
Remember, I am in NO way a psychologist or mental health expert (I am a journalist actually lol). Just a fellow Black girl hoping to help those who share my experiences. So welcome, and I hope you enjoy!
