If you have any book suggestions, leave them in the comments! Trying to increase how much time I read and I’m looking for a new variety of literature to dive into!


Today and tomorrow, Join Certified 10’s #NOTCRAZYBUTHUMAN social media campaign to usher in Minority Mental Health Awareness Month and the premiere of the new series, Certified Words. We’re fighting the stigma surrounding mental health illnesses and the usage of the word “crazy” to label those who are battling them.

Our struggles do not mean we are “crazy”, it means we are human.

Join the movement by tweeting, facebooking, or instagramming your insecurities, your flaws, or your battle with your mental health followed by the hashtag #notcrazybuthuman.
