Do You See what I See?

Why is it that most cultural groups, specifically those of African decent have a hard time trusting healthcare services, both physical medicine, and mental health services? According to a study that was mentioned in the Journal of Community Health, written by Khubchandani et al you'll find this article to be interesting in regards to which class, race, and educational background, as per the study recorder who has the greater chances of COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy. The article was published in the January 2021 edition, but I'll let you as the reader take a look for yourself.  The results of the study reported that out of the 1,878 participants  completed surveys and questionnaires through social media methods(probably "swipe up" or a pop up advertisement).

"Stick to your kind!!"

"Stick to your kind" So this morning I did an IG live ( a few weeks ago really by the time you read this) entitled  "Stick to your kind". As I mentioned in the post, was the funny story of a Jamaican ex. After we finished dating I moved on to another Jamaican guy. LOL I know, (judge your mother) LOL .When word got back to my ex he said to me in a scolding fashion "STICK TO YOUR KIND" that was the funniest yet most profound thing a person could say to me. Granted he was definitely speaking from a place of defat.  I think what triggered him was that his competition was within his own community.I totally empathized and backed off. I...

"I like your Cocoa"

"I like your Cocoa!" song titled by the known Ghanaian artist Wisa Greid. Three  months ago, Ghana's president  Nana Akufo-Addo announced that the country will be redefining the cocoa industry themselves in which sales of cocoa will no longer be provided to Switzerland.       In my natural high-pitched form of excitement in this week's podcast episode, titled "You are a Nunoo!", I started the auditory congratulations to the President of Ghana for a great move towards positive progression. Positive progression is what most brown and black people have been fighting, for centuries! Our ancestors and those that came before us have all fought for the same thing. Human Rights! Even in US history's ( now trending as "his-story") adulterated form...

Are you Sure!?!

Are you Sure!?! is not too far from Are you mad!?! The only difference is that the elders are asking you if you are certain of yourself? Meaning are you confident in all areas. That was the inspiration behind this week's episode title. Keep reading to discover more!  (Picture of the host in the podcast sports bra and yoga pants  available in the online shop) However, if someone is suffering but uncertain as to WHERE and or what could have caused their pain, then it leaves room for more searching. This was the case in which a potential client asked me on ways they could heal their codependency? New to the term  I started to do my own research. I...

The Podcast and the Brand

Nikole hosts a podcast entitled "Argh U Mad!?" She describes the title as a "play on words," from a common expression used by her elders in Ghana, West Africa when disciplining or questioning someone's motives. The term "are you mad?" can be translated to "Are you crazy?" a common expression used in English speaking homes. Nikole's controversial logo and title encourages  the much needed discussion of self awareness and mental health within the home and the community at large. These discussions are typically considered to be Taboo. Nikole's youthful persona allows her listeners to engage through her personal experiences while also covering much needed discussions within the communities at large. Through music and scientific research Nikole moves through the community...
