Introducing Beth Elkassih...
I crawled out of that 'dark rabbit hole' of acute depression & reclaimed my happiness and I can do the same thing for you!
I'm a motivational speaker, best-selling author, and passionate advocate for mental health and well-being.
As a professional blogger and creator of 'Made You Smile Back.'
I strive to do my part to help remove the stigma of mental illness.
After 'walking the walk' of recovering from acute depression and anxiety, I learned how to reclaim my happiness and experience joy again in my life, but it didn't come easy.
Today, I can now 'talk-the-talk' and am a certified
NAMI Family Support Group Facilitator in Tarrant County, Texas
WHY I CREATED 'MADE YOU SMILE BACK
'Made You Smile Back was a result of my desire to provide an additional 'online resource' for those of us who struggle with life challenges in a no-judgment zone to come together as a community and share meaningful 'conversation.'
As a result, in addition to over 175+ articles on the subject of 'Achieving Happiness', I also offer one-on-one Happiness Life Coaching!
In 2019, I wrote my 1st best-selling book on Amazon, "The Power of Unexpected Miracles". This book is about the true story of the survival of my 3rd daughter and myself during her birth at age 41 and the series of ‘blessings in disguise' or ‘miracles’ which occurred during the recovery of experiencing acute post-partum depression.
My 2nd best-seller, "I Just Want To Be Happy Again" was published in 2021, also on Amazon. In addition, 4 journals have been published with a 2nd Edition of both books coming out in 2023.
