Over the last few years, public reflections about mental health have become more prominent within the Black community. As a result, more and more people feel comfortable disclosing to their loved ones and even strangers on social media that they are in therapy. In this new podcast series hosted by Kaya FM’s executive producer, Ncebakazi Manzi, we get to understand what motivates people to seek help in the form of therapy, how they even find the right therapist for themselves and what benefits they reap from the process. IN THERAPY is a special 10 part series contributing to the conversations already happening about the pursuit of mental health.
