June 11, 2024

We’re back for another episode dedicated to Black Men’s Health Month.

This time, we’re diving deep into a topic that often gets swept under the rug: mental health.

In this episode, Blaise Harris, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and host of The Dope Black Therapist Podcast, joins me for a powerful conversation about shattering the stigma surrounding mental health in the Black community, particularly for Black men.

We explore the historical and generational factors that contribute to this silence, and the importance of creating safe spaces for open and honest discussions.

Blaise and I tackle the role of religion and faith in mental health, the importance of finding the right therapist, and the need to break the cycle of silence.

We also discuss healthy coping mechanisms, self-care practices, and valuable resources available to Black men seeking mental health support.

This episode is a must-listen for anyone who wants to learn more about taking charge of their mental well-being and building resilience.

Hit play and join us for a conversation that’s both insightful and inspiring. You won’t regret it!
