Professional Experience

Tanisha Herrin is a self-published author and independent writer for almost 15 years. Her writing interests started with journaling and poetry writing and grew into professional writing. After dealing with personal experiences of depression and suicide, she developed an interest in research and writing in mental health and self-improvement subject areas. Over the past few years, she has supported several nonprofit mental health organizations including DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance), NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

As a self-published author, Tanisha has published books on self-help, depression, and poetry. Her book titled “Fighting the Blues as a Black Woman: How I Survived Suicidal Depression” was a featured on Amazon’s Top 100 Paid Titles List ranking at #45 under depression, mental health, and health, mind & body genres upon its initial release.

After writing about her struggles with depression, Tanisha became interested in helping others cope with depression including a special interest encouraging people of color to seek support. Tanisha contributes articles on mental health topics on SelfGrowth.com as a Dealing with Depression Expert. She also blogs about personal experiences and mental health topics through her blog: The INSPIRE blog.

Before pursuing a full-time writing career, she worked as an office assistant for a transportation company and medical office after working in retail customer service. While working different jobs, she was writing as a hobby and later decided to become a freelance writer after the company she was working with relocated to another state. It was an excellent opportunity to take writing skills to another level while providing others with informative and inspiring content.

“My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness”

Mental health & wellness are essential aspects of living a fulfilled life. Because we live during challenging social and economic times, it is more important than ever to take proper care of yourself, so you can make the best choices to achieve your goals. People should continue to advocate for quality care and support for anyone dealing with mental health challenges. Your health is your wealth. I commend those who want to improve any aspect of their well-being including mental, emotional, and spiritual health. For many, it requires making significant changes and sacrifices that lead to better self-awareness and unique personal experiences that become blessings for themselves and others.
