In honor of Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in July, I am highlighting eight podcasts made by people of color that discuss mental health, wellness and/or personal development. I launched the Fireflies Unite With Kea podcast because I wanted to bring light into darkness (just like the fireflies), create a safe space for people of color who live with mental illness and normalize the mental health conversation. As a suicide survivor, I know how isolating it can be when struggling mentally and emotionally.
Because of the internet, podcasting allow us to create communities and connect with people that we can relate to. If you want a glimpse into therapy, there are podcast created by black therapists. While these podcasts are not substitutes for a relationship with a therapist or life coach, you can gain valuable insight.
Check out my favorites below!
Dr. Joy Harden Bradford is really changing the game when it comes to therapy for black women and girls. Not only does she has a podcast but she also has a directory of black therapists. The Therapy for Black Girls podcast is about all things mental health, personal development, and small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.
