Yashi Brown – Musician, Poet, Speaker and Author

Yashi Brown is a writer, poet, pubic speaker and leading voice in the mental health community and movement. Poetry became her chosen creative expression upon experiencing severe bipolar depression and mania symptoms as a young adult. Fueled by a burning desire to feel empowered and her deep spirituality, Yashi found her path to recovery.  Today, Yashi is an award-winning speaker and mental health advocate thriving with bipolar type I.


Since 2011, Yashi’s poetry, spoken word and story of  recovery have been featured on Today Show, CNN, HuffPost Rise, SIRIUS XM, FOX News, CBS, ABC, KTLA, Ebony/Jet and TeenVogue media outlets and publications. She has published mental health pieces for Thrive Global, Huffington Post, NAMI National, NAMI Advocate and our HHS Department with a focus on self empowerment, eliminating self imposed stigma, radical self awareness and the many faces of recovery.
