Session 43: Mental Health for Mama

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.

This week’s episode features Alece Chanel Coleman, Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Alece and I discussed some of the unique mental health challenges Black moms face, the importance of having someone to advocate for you in the postpartum period, how to deal with mommy guilt, putting an end to mommy wars, and strategies for managing your mental health while raising children.
