Mental Distress and Compassion

The internet went wild when Michelle Obama admitted on her new podcast that she was suffering from “low-grade” depression. What do we all feel about our current culture of anxiety and depression? Are people ashamed? Is the stigma gone? Are there differences among white women and Black women? And how does that wellness industry fit into all of this? ### Sources: [https://www.vulture.com/2017/01/black-ish-recap-season-3-episode-13.html](https://www.vulture.com/2017/01/black-ish-recap-season-3-episode-13.html) [https://www.instagram.com/theviragoproject/](https://www.instagram.com/theviragoproject/) [https://thelovelandfoundation.org/](https://thelovelandfoundation.org/) [https://therapyforblackgirls.com/](https://therapyforblackgirls.com/) [https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/06/us/michelle-obama-coronavirus-depression-trnd/index.html](https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/06/us/michelle-obama-coronavirus-depression-trnd/index.html) [https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/08/us/michelle-obama-depression-black-women-wellness-trnd/index.html](https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/08/us/michelle-obama-depression-black-women-wellness-trnd/index.html) [https://howyouheal.com/whitewashing-wellness/](https://howyouheal.com/whitewashing-wellness/) [https://www.athleteally.org/decolonizing-fitness/](https://www.athleteally.org/decolonizing-fitness/) [https://www.decolonizingwellnessto.com/home-1](https://www.decolonizingwellnessto.com/home-1) [https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/06/12/mental-health-george-floyd-census/?arc404=true](https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/06/12/mental-health-george-floyd-census/?arc404=true) -- ### Prompts Want to talk about this with your friends?

Interview with Andrea Carbon Korsak

In today’s episode, Lenya and Alexandra talk to a perinatal nurse about racial and gender bias in nursing. Andrea is a labor and delivery nurse 10 years into her dream career. She embraces the intersectionality of being a female, Filipino-American immigrant, millennial, veteran, and more. She loves fitness, her family (three pups and one great husband), and the kinds of friendships where different women can face issues of race and social justice together.

Interview with Nicole and Cassidy Part 2

We continue the conversation with mother Nicole and daughter Cassidy Meyers, today discussing the racism received by being Black in a White neighborhood and how it can be so subtle or indiscriminate that it’s confusing and disorienting. Also, “the talk’, and how it may be different for young men and young women. Lastly, a generational discussion on WAP by Cardi B. and Megan Thee Stallion, how it empowers women, and how it alone is not good enough. Nicole Meyers is an attorney in Los Angeles, California, where she practices plaintiff-side employment law. She holds a J.D. from Southwestern Law School, a B.A. in Theatre from UCLA, and is licensed to practice law in California and New York. Before becoming an attorney, Nicole traveled the world working as an actress and model. When she’s not aggressively advocating for her clients, Nicole’s likely enjoying quality time with her husband, children, and their three frisky cats. Cassidy Meyers is a senior photography major, writing minor at Spelman College. She’s a Los Angeles native who has been living in Atlanta for the past four years attending college. Recently, she participated in a program called ‘Black Future Creators’ through Beats where she got to create content related to her photography journey, which was featured on their site. She has loved the arts since childhood, and plans on continuing to use photography as a form of self expression. -- Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.
