Mrs. Blue Diamond 2021
Hi! I’m TrinaMarie Shaw the current United States of America’s Mrs. Blue Diamond 2021. My platform is creating awareness around mental health and mental illnesses, eradicating the stigma associated with mental illness, and reducing death by suicide. You see my mom (deceased) was diagnosed with a mental illness and it first impacted me at the age of 7. I later found out, her mom was also diagnosed. That’s why I know this is more to me than just a cause. This is my story. This is my purpose in life. When I was younger, I never received any type of therapy or counseling to help me understand what was happening. In African American cultures, we rarely seek help. Both of my grandfathers were pastors so I also had other layers of beliefs besides societies. I had beliefs from religious communities. This isn’t to point fingers or place blame. My sole purpose is to create more awareness so we can create more change.
I’m sure you can imagine how all of these layers can cause me to become extremely private, hurt, confused, and even ashamed. I said I would never tell because what would people think of me. Later, I realized 2 alternative forms of therapy allowed me to remain a positive person for the most part; frequently being labeled as a ray of sunshine. Don’t get me wrong, I also had my dark times.
I thank God for basketball and later photography as they both became my therapy. Although I have been conscientiously on this journey as a mental health advocate for the past several years, I have been preparing for this Mission and this Title since I was 7. I love the fact that this journey not only allows me to help others, but it has been one of my greatest process for healing. No one should have to suffer in silence. It hurts my heart that my mom was fighting this battle alone.
I want every person to know that it’s okay to not be okay, just don’t unpack your bags and stay there. Please ask for help. Additionally, let’s be intentional in learning how we can provide better understanding and support when it comes to mental health, mental well-being, and mental illnesses. Life is so much better when we support one another! Wouldn’t you agree?
A Few Interesting Facts:
- In Nevada, between the ages of 12-19 years old, suicide is the #1 reason for death and the #2 reason between 20-44 years of age.
- Death by suicide is the #10 leading cause of death in the United States.
- In Nevada, we lose someone to suicide every 40 minutes
- In the US, we lose someone to suicide every 11 minutes.
- In the World, we lose someone to suicide every 40 seconds.
Winning the title will allow me to continue focusing on my platform on a larger scale. It would also allow me to honor my mom and support those with no voice.
