It’s Not Mental Illness, it’s Mental Brilliance.

Mental Brilliance explores the correlation between mental health and personal success. Our mission is to celebrate and support individuals who experience mental health issues and teach them how to use their Mental Illness Mental Brilliance  as springboards for their success.

We aim to help Mentally Brilliant individuals develop the confidence and skills to sustain themselves emotionally and financially.

Mental Brilliance was created by  Te-Erika Patterson, a Mental Health and Personal Success Teacher who has authored more than 11 books, created more than 1200 inspirational videos and documentaries and coached hundreds of women and men on the art of leadership and self reliance.
