My name is Tashina Calhoun. I am the founder of the nonprofit One Belief Organization and initiative mental health is a great wealth blog.

Tashina is a mother of 2 and currently resides in Texas serving the community and bringing awareness to the masses in Dallas Fort Worth Area. Serving as president of the Organization; includes but is not limited to overseeing the daily operations of the organization.
Tashina attended college in West Texas and then finished her studies and graduated with her bachelor’s From the University of Texas at Arlington.
Having had a professional background of working for Texas schools for almost a decade as a Texas education, Tashina is also certified as a Mental Health First Aid USA responder, and has been trained to provide initial help to people experiencing mental health problems such as depression, anxiety disorders, psychosis, and substance use disorders.
Tashina embodies being a service to people in the community. Tashina has also served as an educator for the state of Texas, cultivating the minds of today’s youth for a better tomorrow.
Tashina’s belief is that mental health affects us all and we all have experienced mental health and awareness of it at some point and we all can work with one another to be more emotionally intelligent. Tashina tackles this by meeting people right where they are at. Teaching positive ways of resolving conflict, that do not result in violence, hosting events about self-care and awareness, and emotional intelligence. The end result of each event is primarily self-awareness and outcomes that will lead to better choices and living more productive, healthy lifestyles.
Tashina believes if we teach mental health awareness and destigmatize the shame associated with mental health, anxiety, and depression schools and our communities will be safer.
One Belief was birthed as a result of an altercation at her daughter’s school since then it has become Tashina’s mission to bring awareness and address the stigma and get others to help when needed.
I'm Tashina Calhoun, Founder of One Belief.
