Shamanda Burston, a licensed mental health professional, released Wounded Healer in June 2019. The book references mental health and the need to heal. "Every therapist, needs a therapist", she stated. Mental health awareness is mandatory. Look within yourself to start healing. This great read will now become a movie!
Wounded Healer is a drama (book-screen) about the behind the scenes life of a therapist struggling with mental illness, family drama, and healing from past traumatic experiences.
The lead character/protagonist in the film is a successful Black female. Wounded Healer was written by a Black woman and will be directed/produced by a woman. Our Goal is to utilize a diverse team of creatives to bring this film to life with authenticity and culture.
Wounded Healer is a feature film (book to screen play) which brings visibility to the importance of mental health and counseling. It explores the behind-the-scenes story of a licensed therapist with past traumas related to sexual assault, domestic violence, childhood illness, teenage pregnancy, addiction, and family dysfunction that parallels those of her clients.
When her life begins to fall apart, she is forced to further explore and seek her own healing, forgiveness, and self care. Think OWN's Queen Sugar meet Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of Marriage Counselor. Wounded Healer will help spread mental health awareness, encourage the audience to heal his/her past to promote and normalize counseling.
