About the Author

For more than twenty years, Roslyn Daniel has studies social welfare policy as a Case Practice Specialist and former child welfare worker in New Jersey. Through varied vignettes with families, Roslyn developed a strong interest in Mental Illness and its impact upon family and interpersonal relationships. In 2009, after the death of a close high school friend, Roslyn began studying Suicidality and Depression, as well as the social and family dynamics affected by the mentally ill. Through research, interviews with suicide survivors as well as men and women battling disorders which lead to suicidal ideations and attempts, Roslyn developed a series of novels which describe such diseases as Dysthymia, Bi-Polar Disorder, GAD, PTSD, Depression, Addiction and OCD in a series of novels titled, "A Series of Failed Suicidal Careers". The first of these books was published April 2016 and has been critically hailed as a step in the right direction for communities of color, who avoid discussions about mental illness and its stigma in family systems. Efforts to create forums for men and women to explore their diagnoses has led to the creation of "Wellness 101: A State of Mind Conferences" which train communities to identify symptoms of mental illness and ways to access treatment.

Roslyn received her Masters Degree in Social Work from Rutgers University in 2002 and is currently pursuing Doctoral studies in Sociology. Roslyn continues to write novels and sponsor wellness conferences through her company, Artistic Overtures founded in 2014. Since its inception, Roslyn has sponsored more than five Wellness gatherings and hopes to incorporate these conferences into a Wellness Center which is slated for 2018.

Roslyn is a devoted teacher and mental health advocate committed to empowering communities of color to learn more about mental illness and recovery.
