In May of 2018, after being diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder developed from daily stress and unresolved traumas, she found herself losing passion for everything, and started noticing increasing signs of change; including worry, missing a lot of work, having low energy, and feelings of hopeless.
Despite her efforts to keep pushing as an active advocate in the human services field, she had to put a pause on life; leaving her career, and embracing recovery. On her personal journey to recovery, her purpose expanded beyond; what she could have imagined; and a deeper passion to meet the needs of society and serve God's people through the ministry of healing, became evident. Through her personal experience; awareness and passion to focus on the WHOLE person became more evident. She was even more committed to supporting women in areas of Healing, Faith, Mental Wellness, and Self-Care.
Mental Freedom Belongs to Those Who Fight For It
SCM Healing Essentials was started to provide a self-care solution to those needing relief from daily stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges inhibiting them from living fully functional lives by developing handmade Aromatherapy products.
Our owner; someone impacted by a mental health challenge and an active Master's level Human Services worker understood that providing handmade products was only a step towards managing one's mental well-being, so she went back to the drawing board and added an extra layer to the vision.
She decided to further develop philanthropic and programming endeavors for individuals needing more intensive support by adding self-paced wellness tools, wellness workshops/training, and life coaching services.
In order to make services/support more accessible, we provide life coaching services, therapy referrals, workshops/training, and scholarships to bridge the financial gap for those impacted and needing support. We use a portion of our quarterly sales to offer a scholarship to cover life coaching/mental health services and sponsored Adult Mental Health First Aid Classes through our Wellness Haven Fund.
