Speaking Engagements

As the founder and executive director of nonprofit Eustress, Inc., Rwenshaun Miller uses conversation and various activities to break the stigma associated with mental health and mental illness.  

Since November 2014, Rwenshaun has engaged in over 15 community events through through the “Let’s Talk About It” talk series. The mission of the series is to create an safe space to openly discuss various mental health awareness topics, such as: 

  • Mental health awareness at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
  • Mental health for helping professionals 
  • Mental health and relationships
  • Black mental health
  • Minority women handling men with mental illness

 

Each conversation helps individuals better understand:

  • How mental illness is weakening our community by being under-discussed
  • How to live a successful, fulfilling life with a mental illness
  • What mental illness is
  • How to seek help
  • How to provide support

 

 

Rwenshaun believes that these conversations are extremely important for the African American community and African American males who continuously suffer in silence.
