Therapy in the Black Community – Beyond the Scenes | The Daily Show

Published on July 20, 2021

Black folks seeking mental health treatment face a litany of obstacles: a scarcity of Black therapists, stigma within the Black community and discrimination. In this episode, Roy is joined by Daily Show writers X Mayo and Ashton Womack for a wide-ranging and deeply personal discussion about mental health, the Black church, the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020 and more. #DailyShow #BeyondTheScenes

    I am not sure what Part 2 will be about but I would ask that you all CONSIDER a Part 3 in addressing the OLDER FOLKS and the Lack of Concern and/or care given to them. Especially important when many DO NOT have ANYONE CHECKING on their WELL-BEING?
    Thank you so much for this segment

    Can we now do a behind the scenes for employment laws? I’m getting laid off from my job and they aren’t giving me a severance package and now I have the struggle by myself to find a lawyer and yet bc I live check to check I can’t afford one 😩😩. I’m tired of fighting these people by myself I need help and even my Black Female Therapist said I need to find a lawyer but she went on vacation for a month bc she’s burnt out too.

    As a support worker in the UK we had a policy of employing a diverse team, worked brilliantly but then we’d have a white middle class social worker come in and the guards would go straight up. (Not in all cases but too many). There was also an issue with white GP’s not listening nor having empathy.
