Lifekit health- how to talk to your latinx parent about mental health
This podcast hits all the key points to get help for your mental help one way or another. They go into depth on how to start the “uncomfortable” conversations with your family about not only your mental health but theirs as well. I believe this episode hits so close to home and needs to be heard by every latinx in my community because we all don’t realize we need to take care eachother not just physically but mentally in order to break the cycle of sweeping it under the rug. We can go as a whole and finally heal for our future generations.💕

I really enjoy listening to this podcast because the information provided is always helpful. The “Need to make a change in your life” episode was really helpful for me because I have been trying to be more consistent in my fitness journey.
