Branded as the 'Mental Wellness Junkie;' Tynesha 'Tyi' Flood began her journey as a mental health advocate in 2016 with a major focus on women, mothers, and children who lived with depression and anxiety disorders.  After personally being diagnosed with major depressive disorder, seeing many of her childhood friends,  and other young adults and children succumb to their illness through suicide, Tynesha felt that it was time attack the suicide crisis and stigma around mental health.   Awesome Women of Empowerment, Inc (The A.W.E Group)  was formed in 2017 with a mission to educate, support, and empower those who live with mental health conditions. Tynesha is also a certified mental health first aid who is committed to aiding those who are dealing with a mental health crisis.
