Book Review About Gary T. Taylor’s Book “YOU GOOD FAM?”
Gary T. Taylor created a marvelous book “You Good FAM?” This is worth reading a mandatory reading for everyone to understand the importance of awareness about Mental Health and Wellness in the Black Community. It is especially also need to be talking about in The Black Church Community because they still believe it is a taboo. I should knows about the Church because I was called a punk for wanted to kill myself. I was told by Church members that I don’t have faith because I am battling depression and a saved person doesn’t supposed to be depressed. I didn’t listen to them and decided to get help with a Licensed professional that deals with Mental Health. That was the best decision that I ever made. I also change my membership to a new Church at First Baptist Church of Crown Heights and I get do many support and love with the works I am doing to breaking the stigma about Mental Illness. I makes sure that I educated myself about not only my Mental Illness diagnosis but I also learning about every diagnosis about Mental Illness.
There were a lot of significant enlightenment that was provided by this amazing young black author with a keen and practical perspective on mental health. The things Gary spoken about the things that I have recently been talking about with some of my fellow Mental Health Peer Counselor. Mental Health Awareness/Mental Illnesses in the black community is something that needs to have a discussion. With “You GOOD FAM?” and his work in Mental Health, Gary is empower us into creating a comfort level between all to do so.
Gary allows God to anoints his pen to create an excellent and a well develop book about awareness of Mental Illness in the Black Community. Again I worked in the Mental Health Sector at Metropolitan Hospital- NYCHHC as a Mental Health Peer Counselor in the Inpatient Unit. I believe that God wanted this book to come into existence not only for us to take care of our temple and our mind but to be brought to light so much knowledge in for the readers like myself to have a better understanding. I encourage every readers to share the information about this book and encourage them to read it for themselves. “YOU GOOD FAM” is corresponding an eye opener and should definitely empower us to have a conversation about a subject that affects Everyone in this life.

This is a mirror moments we all need to look at about our lives. Times that we wasted on things and on individuals we don’t get back. Choose your time wisely.
Imagine finding someone you love like this, someone who makes you smile like this daily and suddenly it’s snatched away.
Imaging being Diddy. Almost 50 and having one of the longest playboy phases ever and the woman you love dies suddenly. Then you have to admit to yourself and to the world, you loved her and wasted her years and yours because you thought you had time.
Imaging being Nipsey, 33, and you KNOW Lauren is the woman for you but y’all are taking y’all’s time because you’re young and you think you have the time to pace yourselves in your relationship. Then you get killed before y’all can have that married, forever after type love you were pacing yourselves for.
Imagine being Greg and Nene, married twice, promising for better or for worse. You live the high life because life has always been on the for better side and then cancer comes knocking at your door and y’all are being torn apart because no one tells you how to handle the for worse part when it could end in death. And you don’t know which trip to the hospital will be “that trip”, so you stay on edge, arguing about trivial things…wasting time.
Time is limited. Time is valuable. Time is of the essence. Time waites for no one. Time is the only thing that we can never know for sure, how much we possess. Why waste any of it on trivial mess?
