We Stay Sober Out Loud For Those Struggling in Silence

Hi! Many of you may know me as Scooter, the upbeat energetic person that cares about so many. But little do you know I had to learn to care for myself first. I had my first bout of Depression in college, but with stigmas in the black community, I didn’t identify or take it seriously. Through a life of alcoholism, which has a major impact on serotonin and mood, I soon started to recognize negative patterns in my life. At one point in my adulthood, I realized I needed help and was diagnosed with Bipolar Depressive Disorder. The alcohol had a hold of me it was my choice of medication.

It wasn’t until COVID hit that I realized I needed to seek some serious help. Through the help of my company’s EAP program, I sought therapy on my own and took my illness seriously. Many didn’t know my struggles were due to Mental Illness, but it took a toll on my family. Through therapy, medication, self-care, I am now happy to say that I am now  sober, and I am a better person. I created Brothers Brunch Foundation to help Black Men with Mental Health and Self Care Awareness. I share this to say that after 30 years of battling my Mental Stigma, I finally used the resources that I had to be a “Better Me”. I must speak out because my Me just might be YOU! Let’s take the first step together as “You Are Not Alone”!
