Over 300 million people suffer from depression and anxiety globally, yet very few can chart a map to cope let alone offer hope to others. Throughout the US, these two specific mental health concerns have increased considerably around 10% for Black young adults like Kelly, a 29-year-old New Jersey native. Reaching a growing audience of 3,000 listeners and followers, Jeff Kelly is an emerging thought leader with fresh perspective in managing the hurdles of mental health for all, even more so for young Black men and has penned his personal struggles with identity, sense of purpose and self-worth in The Avenue.
Kelly encourages his readers to author their own map to escape, “Whether it's your personal journal, a speech or an upcoming best seller, write through the negativity and tell your story with no fear.”
In A-Z style, Jeff Kelly captures overthinking, awkward situations, motivation, and money just to name a few. Generally, every man has experienced the crossroads described in The Avenue in one way or another. Managing life hurdles with this guide can be the key for any young person to potentially avoid an unending downward spiral that could create a lifetime of irreparable trauma that ultimately shows up in work troubles, scarce finances, rocky relationships, and limited personal freedom.
Reader reviews are proof that his audience easily relates to Kelly’s thought process and find encouragement as he redefines who he is and how he shows up in the world. One reader writes, “This book is so POWERFUL!!! Those of us who have sons, brothers, fathers, nephews, etc. THIS book is for you! Please grab your copy and copies for every male you love or care about that will benefit from the COURAGEOUS and DYNAMIC words in each chapter of this book.
