If you are feeling this way, help is available. Brighter Days are here!

My name is Yanada G. Essex. I started Brighter Day, Inc. to bring “Brighter Days” to the New Orleans area. I truly have a passion for New Orleans and its people. I believe that change can take place in New Orleans. With a more balanced approach to living, people can make positive advancements in their lives to improve their families and the community as a whole.

God created human beings in a marvelous manner. The Bible states, we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). Human beings, unlike other living creatures, are made with the following three components: mind, body, and spirit. These parts work interchangeably with each other to make the total person. Consequently, to achieve healing in one’s life, each area must be addressed.

Brighter Days, Inc. seeks to restore the total person with the following approaches:

  • Utilizing a holistic model
  • Conducting a thorough assessment of the mind, body, and spirit
  • Providing appropriate and effective clinical interventions
  • Promoting physical health by advocating for a healthy lifestyle
  • Embracing spirituality by using supportive Christian principles and models, when appropriate.
