Cynthia Mobley Howell is a Minister, Speaker, Best Selling Author, Life Coach & Mental Health Advocate who is dedicated to ending the stigma surrounding mental health issues. What drives her is she is the youngest of four siblings raised in a home where ALL her brothers were affected by a mental illness. The lack of early intervention impeded her brothers' abilities to successfully manage their illnesses and their stories ended tragically. She continues to mourn their chance to live ordinary, productive, and fulfilling lives.
Cynthia's book, "Crazy Didn't Get Me", will be published in 2022. In her book she allows you an up close and personal look into the drama and the trauma of living in a household with siblings affected by mental health conditions.
She is one of 40 authors in the Amazon #1 Best Seller book anthology, "I'm Still Standing". Her chapter provides a snippet of some of her experiences growing up with siblings with a mental illness. Cynthia's chapter is titled, "Shhh...Don't Tell Nobody".
As a result of her painful and traumatic experience surrounding sibling mental illness, Cynthia is committed to lending her voice to help eradicate the stigma of mental health issues. Her focus is on the importance of EARLY INTERVENTION and BRIDGING THE GAP between mental health and the faith-based community. Her mantra is, "I'M NOT KEEPING QUIET ANYMORE", as she refuses to stand by any longer and participate in NOT addressing the elephant in the room. It's time to END THE STIGMA surrounding mental illness. Because they kept silent, her family paid a high price. Her desire is to motivate other families to not be ashamed to reach out to a trusted resource if they believe a loved one is struggling with mental health issues.
Cynthia created her own T-shirt line that displays her mantra: "I'm Not Keeping Quiet Anymore". For her, it really has become more than just a mantra...it's a MOVEMENT!
