Episode 30: Mental Illness

Today we decided to touch on a topic that is often not spoken about ESPECIALLY in POC households. We candidly share our own experiences with having people in our lives who are dealing with mental illnesses as well as our personal experiences as well.

[[ TRIGGER WARNING: We do mention self harm and death by suicide starting at 32:30 -  37:00]]
