FEATURED BOOK QUOTES

"On the outside, I was thriving and healing. On the inside, I was broken, confused, hurting and crying out for help. As a mental health professional, I knew all the signs of depression, plus it was all around me in my family, friends, and clients. So, I tried my best not to display what others would see as extreme sadness. In the end, that only hurt me more than it protected anyone else."

— SHELBI LEWIS

"I didn’t start to deal with it until I had a rough day at work and I couldn’t hide my emotions anymore. I realized I needed to reach out for help. A mental health professional required help."
