Our survivor story pick of the day is #JeniferLewis. A few years ago, the actress revealed her diagnosis with bipolar disorder since the early nineties. One of the main triggers of her illness was the death of her father. She shared, "I was overwhelmed with my grief, and unable to handle my feelings. I cried and cried, and I started to scream. I wanted to be let out of the darkness." It wasn't until a close friend pointed out the random outbursts were more than just grief, Jenifer decided to seek professional counseling. Being in denial is a major setback in getting treatment, because most people with the illness, find it hard to accept that there is a problem. This often leads to damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, suicide, and self-medication. The actress admitted to drinking heavily as a college student, and described the behavior, as a "byproduct of the uncontrollable emotions bipolar people suffer." Luckily she recovered and discovered a healthier approach to live with her diagnosis. "When you are depressed, you don’t want to see people. You don’t want to see light. Now, I wake up I purposely, put a smile on my face, open up the curtains and blinds to let light in. To be the light, you have to see the light. That’s why I am healthy," Jenifer explained. Although she still requires therapy and medication, the actress chooses to live in the moment, and just want to be healthy, happy, and free. The biggest take-away from the experience for her is, "for those who are also living with mental illness, another key ingredient that goes hand-in-hand with therapy and medication is self-love." We hope sharing her story will inspire young people to overcome their mental health challenges like Jenifer did. #BeatYourBlues #saveourgirls #blackish #blackgirlmagic #browngirls #blackgirlpower #blackwomen #blackgirls #womenofcolor #browngirlsrock #blackgirlsrock #dmvgirls #griefsupport #dmvwomen #dcmillennials #mentalhealth #blackmillennials #dmvladies #blackwomenrock #blackmentalhealth #blackmindsmatter #girlempowerment #mentalhealthmonth #womensmentalhealth

Isabella y su banda! I love love watching them play and talk about skin color, injustice at school, and what they want to be when they grow up... they empower each other... today one of her friends said "at the beginning of the school year I was shy but I'm gaining my confidence back" - These 9-year-old girls will be our leaders... #browngirls #browngirlpower #empoweringgirls

I was that girl. For a very long time I avoided the sun. For a long time I wore sunscreen that I applied every twenty minutes in the hope to keep my skin free of a tan. For a long time I hid. For a long time I used lightening products... Now I don't. Now I wear sunscreen to protect my skin. Now I wear bronzer to be browner and self tanner in the winter to keep my glow. Now I want to be bronze and brown and dark. Shout out to the girls who haven't found the right community to make them feel their brown is beautiful. We're out here. #browngirls #brownandunbothered #brownisbeautiful #darkskin #brownskin #goldenskin #xicanadaily #xicanx
Take pride in your size! Damn what they're talking about. Lose the weight or keep it on, BUT DON'T EVER LET SOMEONE MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DON'T DESERVE BECAUSE OF YOUR SIZE. 🖕🤘 #plusislife #sizematters #loveyourcurves #behappy #bbw #assstillfattho #browngirls #blackwomanmagic #fullfigured #andhappy

Please find yourself a reason to smile. I can't begin to tell you how much fun I just had in the last couple of minutes playing with filters.
