NYAC S1 Episode 14: Na Craze Dey Worry Am - A Case for Mental Health Advocacy

The Ladies of NYAC are joined by Sara Jean-Philippe (@Sjnphil), a mental health counsellor, as we talk mental health in our communities. We discuss harmful stereotypes, self-harm warning signs, effects of past trauma on mental health, and how we can be better mental health advocates.
