Author: Ivy McQuain

Ivy N. McQuain is an author, business owner, publisher, speaker and mother of two sons, Dee and Nick. She always lived her life "in the moment" never really caring about what she did or how it would make her look. It wasn't until 2015 that she decided enough was enough and went to go get help for the diagnoses of Bipolar I Disorder she received in 2004. Now she is working tirelessly to help Blacks living with mental illness get the help they need as well as others who live with the shame of being mentally ill. Ivy created a video blog called "Young, Black and Bipolar" on YouTube to help others in their journey of mental wellness.
