Keynote Speaker - Emotional Wellness

As a published author of six books focusing on: Communication, Education, Depression, and Relationships in the African American community, Veronica Blakely is going to open our eyes to The T.H.I.E.F. in Mental Health Wellness.  Her presentation will provide tools/suggestions on how to regain our Time, Health, Intimacy, Energy, and Fun during and/or after a challenging change in their lives.

Ludmila Woodruff says, “Many women are unconsciously taught to put everyone's needs before their own.  Although professionally successful, they don't know how to set boundaries in their closest relationships, how to have healthy arguments, how to be vulnerable, to ask for what they want and need, and often don’t feel emotionally safe.” She will lead an informal group discussion exploring the aspects of a Healthy Relationship Wellness and how we can thrive in our relationships with confidence.
