A must for mental health!

This podcast is essential for the mental health of our BIPOC community. The Body “keeps count” of the many micro aggressions we face daily.

This podcast serves as a soothing balm, gives hope and is a vital tool to help us cope one more day.

Please take a moment to share this podcast to as many people as you know and as many platforms. People and institutions need to understand the real stories and role they play in the trauma we face.
