The truths that have to be discussed

It feels refreshing to be able to presence a safe space surrounding the direction of mental health conversations. Great speakers selection!

Fairly interesting, geared for the most privileged

Wayne Brady posted that he was on this show on Instagram, so I listened. I’ve been feeling especially anxious and depressed lately and hoped to gain some wisdom from the show. Overall, it has some good tips about the importance of understanding yourself, reaching out to others, reflecting on what’s going well and what’s not, etc. For anyone who has had therapy, meditation and or coaching, it will be familiar to you.

What turned me off was how much the host interjected herself into the interviews with her guests (I only listened to the one episode, it might be different in others). The guests on the episode I listened to all live in privilege (even if they didn’t grow up in it, they’re very well off financially now). Some of what they talked about doing that helped them is unattainable to me financially and I’m a fairly high earner. So this isn’t for everyone. It feels like it’s best for wealthier suburbanites. It wasn’t awful, just wasn’t great.

Important and Critical Message

Great first episode and hopeful it is followed by more important, meaningful conversations. End the stigma of mental health and creates connectivity among those that are passionate about making change.
