Mental Health Awareness 
& Suicide Prevention



In 2010, Kymara was diagnosed with a mental illness. In 2014, her 19 year old son, D’Andre was also diagnosed with a mental illness and three months later, he died by suicide. After this devastation, Kymara knew she had work to do to educate others about the signs and symptoms of mental illness and suicide.


Kymara passionately and authentically shares her journey of resilience, healing and hope. With her lived experiences and crisis intervention training, she inspires audiences to live forward, take care of themselves so they can be present for others. Kymara believes the more we talk about these issues, the more educated we become and the more we will normalize the conversation and rid the stigma around mental health issues.
