Welcome to Part 1 of our Black Man's Guide for Mental Health series. First up? Anxiety.
As your hosts, you've heard us joke a lot about how we're both introverts and experience slight to moderate to sometimes extreme cases of social anxiety in various spaces of our lives. But along with social anxiety, what are some other types of anxiety? How does anxiety show up in our lives as Black men? Can anxiety ever go away?
Our guest Dwayne James aka Waynes_Ambition, a licensed Social Worker specializing in mental health joins us to today to answer a few of our questions.
We break down the clinical definition of anxiety as well as Dwayne's personal definition of anxiety and he offers several insightful strategies we can all implement today to improve our anxiety.
Tune in next week for Part 2 of our Black Man's Guide for Mental Health series as we tackle Depression.
