Mental Health Awareness Tour for Women, Crazy Like A Fox will Make its First Stop
in Atlanta on the 4-City Tour this Spring/Summer  
Baltimore, MD – May 6, 2019, – Last month, Life Transition Coach, Speaker, Author Melony Hill made the announcement that she was embarking on a 4-City Tour titled “Crazy Like A Fox” Tour, which is also being Co-Hosted by SwagHer Magazine which is an empowerment & lifestyle publication for the progressive woman. This month, as May is Mental Health Awareness Month, there are new developments with the Tour and the individuals who will be featured as panelists. The tour will make its debut in Atlanta, GA on May 25th, then head to Charlotte, NC on June 9th, travel North to Philadelphia July 14th, with its final stop being held on Baltimore, MD where Melony resides. There will be over 20 speakers which include Mental Health experts, Survivors, Entrepreneurs, Life Coaches & more. There will be panel discussions, a writing workshop and fellowship with like-minded women. The layout of the panels and writing workshop are listed below:
PANEL DISCUSSIONS
  • Hurt People Heal People: A candid, open discussion with trauma survivors who turned their pain into healing for themselves and others
  • Fun? I’m Just Trying to Function: Women battling invisible illnesses discuss the pitfalls of not having a visible illness
  • Double Duty.  There’s Two Me’s: A frank discussion with women in positions of power who battle(d) low self-esteem while making power moves
  • It’s All Relative: A candid conversation about how family and our home environments affect our mental health
WRITING WORKSHOP
Writing For My Sanity Workshop: Stronger Than My Struggles Founder, Coach Melony Hill, will discuss how writing and telling her story has changed her life and lead the group in a few healing writing exercises
When asked about the 4-City Tour and her feelings on what women will obtain by attending, Melony states “We have taken great care to curate a safe space for Black women to come together to talk mental health. More importantly, how our mental health affects our sense of self-worth, relationships and every other aspect of our lives. The conversations held will pale in comparison to the bonding, compassion & healing that will take place. Attendees will leave knowing that they aren’t alone in their daily struggles with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma recovery, and other emotional and mental instability“.
The Crazy Like A Fox Tour is designed for the woman who was told she wouldn’t be able to do it, the one who was counted out constantly, the one who has endured tragedies/pitfalls and decided to not become what happened to them. That woman was Melony and she has since embarked on a mission to inspire in hopes to save women by sharing her testimony and knowledge. She strives to be the face of what is possible when you become in control of your life and career. Crazy Like A Fox Tour will be an afternoon of self-awareness in a safe place for Black Women to Learn, Heal & Thrive.

This week, Mayor Bowser announced plans for Lidl US to open its first store in Washington, DC at Skyland Town Center, an 18-acre site located in Ward 7 at the intersection of Good Hope Road, Naylor Road, and Alabama Avenue SE.

The Skyland Development Team secured the lease with Lidl US, a grocer that operates more than 65 stores across nine East Coast states. The store will be the first internationally recognized full-service supermarket to enter Wards 7 and 8 since 2007.

In January, the Mayor broke ground on Good Food Markets in the Bellevue community in Ward 8, making Lidl the second major announcement about bringing a new grocery store East of the River in the first six months of the Mayor’s second term.
