a safe space

ABOUT

Welcome to the pilot series of the ‘This is my lockdown podcast’. I personally haven’t been excited about the term lockdown, because since Covid began, it’s only meant more restrictions and isolation from the ones we love. But recently found out lockdown is synonymous with ‘a safe space’ and that’s what I hope to create with this podcast.

A safe space to discuss mental health and well-being issues in these trying times. I hope that we will be able to transform the narrative regarding mental illness and mental health in our communities. In this safe space, these discussions will inspire us to prioritise our wellbeing, realise the strengths and capabilities within our Black African and Afro-Caribbean communities and break the stigma surrounding mental health.
