Fireflies Unite Podcast With Kea is a weekly podcast from the perspective of individuals thriving with a mental illness created by suicide survivor T-Kea Blackman. The mission of the podcast is to bring light into darkness (just like the fireflies), encourage people of color to seek treatment and end the stigma and raise awareness. We want to show that mental illness does not have "a look"; it includes everyday high-functioning people. The podcast is also designed for people to see how everyday decisions impact their mental health and overall wellness such as finances, relationships, and nutrition. Podcast episodes are available every Monday. Join the conversation and get social!
