Masculinity and Mental Health with Ntokozo Mbokazi
Ntokozo, a mental health activist and researcher, and I take a deep dive into the construction of masculinity and the ways in which it informs men's experiences of mental health. In masculine culture, mental health struggles are often ridiculed, resulting in feelings of isolation and disconnection by men who find themselves confronted by mental health. These feelings may find manifestation in the man in many different ways, most of which may be toxic to himself or to society. Our intention in this episode is to hold space to engage with mental health within masculine/male culture, draw on our own experiences to flesh out the problematic and often suffocating nature of masculinity, and to brainstorm any solutions that can liberate masculinity from its own bounds.
It Gets Difficult Sometimes (A Journal Entry)
As someone who intentionally engages with mental health issues, I have developed an unrealistic expectation for myself: to always be good. It often feels like this is re-enforced by people who depend on me for one or other reason: to always be good. When times of difficulty come, it feels like this should not be happening; like "I should know better". But the reality of things is that sometimes it gets difficult for all of us. In the midst of these emotions, I decided to journal. In this episode is that entry.
Finding Your Voice with Nondu Lehutso
Many of us live lives of quiet desperation - deferring our dreams and being limited by our fears and insecurities - stopping ourselves from expressing our unique gifts or our special talents. Additionally, in a world that seems to be full of expression, it can often feel impossible to get one's voice heard. In this episode I am joined by Nondu Lehutso, a content creator and podcaster, who shares her perspective on how she cultivates the courage to unapologetically take up space and do so while being herself. Nondu shares what it took to find her voice and how she continues to speak not only for herself, but also for the communities she is a part of. Enjoy the episode.
