Session 106: When Mother’s Day Is Painful

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

In this week’s episode I’m sharing tips to take care of yourself if Mother’s Day is painful for you due to a complicated relationship with your mother.

Please help us continue to raise awareness about sexual health and HIV transmission by participating in a short survey at (it takes less than 15 minutes). No personal information will be stored or shared from the survey. The purpose of the survey is to help us get a better understanding about how women communicate with their physicians about their sexual health and to provide you with some more information on PrEP and HIV prevention. The insights gained from the survey will be used in an educational tool to provide information that may be useful in keeping the lines of communication open with healthcare teams. After completing the survey, you can enter your name in a raffle to win one of eight $100 VISA gift cards.
