I’m excited to announce that we are relaunching our blog on HakeemRahim.com! For the past five years I have been speaking openly about my journey with bipolar disorder. I’ve been fortunate to have been able to speak in 15 states and in Jamaica, to law enforcement officials, individuals with mental illness and their family members, and to over 50,000 college, high school and middle school students.
I always share these 3 messages:
- it is okay to talk about what you’re going through
- that there’s no shame in seeking help
- that if you are diagnosed with a mental health challenge, there is hope
I’m so grateful that I have been able to use my deepest pain to create the platform for the highest purpose – empowering others. Now, I am are committed to building platforms for others to share and to spread the values that we promote and embrace: Community, Wellness, Acceptance and Joy. We encourage you to read the blog, share what you love on social media and even contribute.
Now more than ever, we need to move from isolation and disconnection to community, acceptance, wellness and joy. Our blog is a space for sharing those values.
Welcome, and thank you for joining us!
Yours in wellness and acceptance,
