BONUS: Mantras to Help Hang Up Your Cape

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 versions of ourselves.

This Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, we’ve been exploring how we as Black women can free ourselves from the external and internal pressures of showing up as “superwomen.” For this bite-sized bonus episode, we’ve tapped a member of our Sister Circle community to share her experience of playing the superwoman role, We’ve also enlisted the help of past guest therapists LeNaya Smith Crawford, LMFT and Kristen Feemster, LMFT  to provide mantras and words of encouragement for her but they just may help you as well.
