In this week’s episode, Rachel and Jor-El sit down with Jor-El’s friend Bryan. They talk about Bryan’s journey with mental health and how that intersects with being a Black man as the definition of masculinity changes in our current times. Bryan is kind enough to share his experiences in mental health and how men can deepen their understanding of themselves and their relationships by engaging in therapy and ongoing self-reflection.
It’s a rarity for a man to be open about mental health struggles (especially if he doesn’t work in the field of mental health). The conversation with Bryan touches on family, friendships and the importance of participating in therapy throughout one’s life.
