I've had the privilege of working with some incredible people while on my journey. In my mind, I knew what I wanted Nazarah's Heaven to be and what I wanted it to stand for, but I had some difficulty verbalizing it.
And although I am very familiar with what mental Illness entails, I am not a professional. With that, I am unable to offer any professional advice. I will; however, always strongly suggest seeking assistance from someone who is well-versed in the field.
Below you will find resources designed to support and advocate for the underdogs. Those battling alone in silence. While they assist, counsel and mentor you, Nazarah's Heaven, without question, will hold your hand and encourage you every step of the way.
