“Finding Peace Amid the Chaos” is her personal story on the struggles with depression and mental breakdown
(LOS ANGELES) (May 23, 2014)—The Irvine Branch Campus of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP)—the leading nonprofit graduate school devoted exclusively to psychology and related behavioral and health sciences—will host Tanya Brown, certified life coach and advocate for mental health awareness, on Saturday, May 31, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
As the youngest sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, Tanya Brown has been a vocal and well-recognized speaker against domestic violence. “Finding Peace amid the Chaos: My Escape from Depression and Suicide” is her personal story of how masking pain, struggle and life challenges can lead a person to a dark space that may feel impossible to overcome. Ten years following the death of Nicole Brown Simpson, Tanya spent months in an in-patient and out-patient program after suffering a mental breakdown. She will share her experiences along with effective coping skills to prevent depression, anxiety, addiction and suicide, and encourage attendees to recognize their own internal battles, so that they can take charge of their own life.
Brown is a certified life coach and has a master’s degree in counseling psychology. She is an advocate for mental health awareness and is dedicated to removing the stigma associated with mental illness.
The event is FREE with limited seating. RSVP is required. For more information, call 949-769-7700. TCSPP’s Irvine Branch Campus is located at 4199 Campus Drive, Suite 400, Irvine, CA 92612.
