OFFICIAL BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Alfiee Breland-Noble

Dr. Alfiee Breland-Noble (aka Dr. Alfiee) is a pioneering psychologist, scientist, author, mental health correspondent, and founder of the innovative nonprofit, The AAKOMA Project. She is also the Chief Mental Wealth Officer for Charlamagne Tha God’s foundation, the Mental Wealth Alliance.

A thought leader in her field, Dr. Alfiee focuses on mental health and suicide prevention (for intersectional Youth and Young Adults of Color, including LGBTQAI+ youth and those with disabilities) along with educating the public about culturally relevant burnout prevention, mindfulness and gratitude practices. Dr. Alfiee envisioned The AAKOMA Project in 1999.  While it began as an academic medicine research lab (first at Duke Medicine then at Georgetown Medicine), in 2018, she boldly transitioned AAKOMA into the thriving Woman of Color led, million-dollar mental health nonprofit it is today.

Dr. Alfiee is a regular media contributor for outlets like The Grio, Today Show, The Breakfast Club, the New York Times, and others. She co-hosts the Audacy Radio suicide prevention special I’m Listening with Carson Daly and Katie Neal, and co-hosted the Born This Way Foundation’s World Kindness Day short film The Power of Kindness, with Lady Gaga. Mixing rigorous science, popular culture and thoughtfulness about diverse population, she is a thought leader and passionate advocate for youth and young adult mental health.  Dr. Alfiee recently had the honor of moderating a National Governors’ Association forum on adolescent mental health with 19th and 21st U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy and Governor Phil Murphy (NJ).

An author/co-author of 3 books: The Handbook of Mental Health in African American Youth (academic textbook), Community Mental Health Engagement with Racially Diverse Populations (academic textbook) and I want to See You Shining: The Guide (co-authored with super-producer Mark ‘King’ Batson) she is respected for her ability to capture audiences and inspire. Dr. Alfiee embodies her belief that there is enough love and light (informed by good culturally relevant science) to help everyone achieve #optimalmentalhealth.

She lives by the mantra that everyone deserves #optimalmentalhealth which should always be informed by #lovelightscience.
