V. Adebayo

This week, we focus on global mental health in the African Diaspora. Our guest, Vanessa Adebayo, imagined and created a nonprofit focused on the health (including mental health) of our brothers and sisters in Africa. She implements conferences throughout the continent to raise awareness and stress the need for caring for our mental health. she also deploys health ambassadors as part of her Africa's Health Matters nonprofit initiative. Her work is essential and reflects the worldwide need for culturally relevant, accessible care. One of Vanessa's goals is to teach people that seeking care for yourself (so that you may become the best you that you can be) is not a selfish act.

(This is Ep 14 because we have 2 special mixes of Ep 12)
