Wellness in Color Podcast Discussion
April 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Wellness in Color is a podcast series of the National Alliance of Mental Illness that explores perspectives on mental health to reshape the cultural language of mental illness. In the podcast young adults of color share their challenges and successes in mental health recovery and wellness. NAMI’s goal is “to reach collective cultural communities through positive reflections on wellness through discussions on why community members do not seek help for themselves or their loved one living with a mental illness.”
There will be a two part discussion. You can attend either of the two sessions for each part, but should attend both parts.
In the first part we will discuss three podcast episodes:
Blurring Tradition by Houa Moua (45min)
Never Stop Watering your Roots by Lauryn David (34min)
The Pressures of Perfection by Aneela Kumar (44min)
Also, we invite you to choose and listen to a fourth episode and do a “show and tell” during our discussion.
