Faithfully Speaking: Mental Health & African American Men


This month, Faithfully Speaking is acknowledging National Mental Health Awareness Month. As you know, mental health is a subject that is still relatively taboo in the African-American community, especially among Black men. However, there is starting to be a shift towards becoming more open and honest about this subject, and that continues here.

In this episode, Melissa Wade chats with Gene Hoskins. You may know him as a nationally-recognized gospel recording artist, but what you may not know is that he is also a licensed psychotherapist. In this podcast, he gives insight into how important it is for Black men (and the entire Black community as a whole) to check in on ourselves and each other.
