Tonight’s special guest is Jade Brown from Georgia. Jade’s first childhood trauma began when she was 3 years old. They had a friend of the family, whom her mother knew and trusted, and would take her to the babysitters and sexually traumatize her. She would cry and be in shock until she was 7 years old. She thought it was normal. Jade’s next childhood trauma was in her preteens by someone who she called a cousin because both of their mothers were great friends. He used to babysit her and when they were alone, he made her give him oral sex, he urinated in her mouth and said if you told, he would hurt her mom. So, she suffered in silence. It was a horrible experience. Life has been overwhelming, and mentally exhausting, she’s been through several therapists with a temporary fix. It has affected all her relationships but today, at present, she’s seeing a therapist through EAP with her job for healing and other outside services. She has been with the National Alliance On Mental Illness (NAMI) for 25 years. She started back home with NAMI Philadelphia, NAMI Sacramento, NAMI San Francisco, NAMI Atlanta /Auburn. Jade is currently a board member with NAMI Dekalb Affiliate. “My work is not done. I’m the voice for those who suffer in silence.” She says. Everyone is invited to engage in tonight's show.
