There’s no denying that mental health is highly stigmatized in communities of color. Thankfully, stigma hasn’t stopped these therapists from spreading awareness through their mental health podcasts. Check out 5 dope podcasts by therapists of color.
HOSTED BY DR. AMBER THORNTON
HOSTED BY DR. JOY HARDEN BRADFORD
You can’t help but feel comforted by Dr. Joy’s southern charm and sweet voice. Dr. Joy, a licensed psychologist based in Atlanta, explores all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves!
You can find episodes on iTunes, SoundCloud, & Google Play
HOSTED BY LICENSED THERAPIST, DAVIA ROBERTS
You didn’t think I’d write an entire blog post about mental health podcasts and not mention my own, did you??? That’s silly! But because I feel weird writing about my own podcast, I’ll share a review from iTunes.
Here it is on Souncloud.
HOSTED BY NIKITA BANKS, LCSW
Nikita holds no punches. She gets straight to the nitty gritty when discussing and educating listeners about mental health. She explores the unique experience of therapy as a person of color and reassures listeners that they’re not alone.
More episodes available on SoundCloud.
HOSTED BY ESTHER BOYKIN, LMFT & ERICA TURNER, MS
Listening to “With that being said” is like eavesdropping on two cool therapists as they share a private conversation about love, motherhood, and LIFE. The most amazing part is their vulnerability to share that being a therapist does not mean they have it all figured it out… Take a listen!
Available on Stitcher and iTunes.
