Amethyst lives with Battered Women’s Syndrome, Borderline Personality Disorder, Complex PTSD and depression. She’s also a mental health advocate and survivor of suicide. Her message is clear in her story, #nothingwasted. She uses all life’s lessons to fight for people living with mental illness and her passion is with the African American community, where she finds stories tend to be hushed and kept secret.
She works with the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention and will be at the May 5th FREE event at the Chicago Heights Recreation Center, 1400 Chicago Rd, Chicago Heights, IL 60411. (Check it out)
