Show Notes

June is an interesting month for mental health! It is both Pride Month as well as the month of Juneteenth. The theme of emancipation runs through the month —i.e. emancipation from trauma, emancipation from stigma, emancipation from loneliness and isolation. June also happens to be Men’s Health Month, and Men’s Mental Health Month. Carrying on the emancipation theme, we look at Black men’s mental health with the help of author, speaker and college basketball Hall of Famer Thabiti Boone.
