On this week's Podtease we continue the conversation on mental health while featuring the intersectionality of being a Black woman in the mental health space. Meet Sedruola Maruska and her award-winning podcast, Diversity Dish, as she connects with Dr. Tiffany M. Jenkins to discuss the importance of boundaries, self-care, therapy -- and how living as a Black woman often means you put yourself last. Sedie bills this as a "must listen" for Black women everywhere -- and for those who love them and those that work with them.
Diversity Dish Episode Notes:
This is a DO NOT MISS episode for Black women, those who love them and those who work with them! Dr. J and Sedie really get into some of the reasons we, Black women specifically, suffer from a lack of self care and what we need to do to change that. We talk about why more Black and brown therapists are needed and how to find the affordability.
Listening to this conversation you'll truly feel like a fly on the wall of a private, important and enlightening conversation.
