Tammy Ozolins is erasing the stigma of mental illness

Tammy is a contributor here at Emotionally Naked. To date, she has written more guest post articles than any other author. She is a middle school teacher who is not afraid to talk about her own mental illness, bipolar disorder rapid cycling. She is a health and PE teacher who has shared with her fellow teachers and principal that she lives with bipolar disorder.

Her candidness in the video below offers you a glimpse into what those who live with this illness endure and the courage and dedication it takes to maintain a healthy life. Tammy educates her students about mental health and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her in action with her students. She’s a warrior and I’m proud to be her partner in our community to erase the stigma of mental illness.

Tammy Ozolins was recently on Virginia Public Media’s show, Virginia Currents hosted by the talented Amy Lacey.

I am an emotionally naked TEDx speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind and co-author with Kim O'Brien PhD, LICSW of Emotionally Naked: A Teacher's Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my younger son, Charles to substance use disorder and suicide on June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, coping strategies/resilience, and grief. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory. Professional Speaker Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.
