SonRise Project creator, Kelli Richardson Lawson, introduces Sharon Green and her son, Azikiwea. Sharon is a life coach and founder of BloomTree Coaching & Consulting Services and mother of three young men. When she got a call from Azikiwea’s college about his mental health, they brought him home. He was later diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and they sought treatment. Thus began a journey of learning, love and compassion for the whole family. Managing mood swings, depression and anxiety through therapy, medication and meditation, Azikiwea has since found healing and hope. Today he is a successful data analytics professional working in the field of neuroscience. Both he and Sharon share their stories about how to navigate the ups and downs of living with mental health challenges, while maintaining their love as a family.
