This week we connected with Yolo Akili, the founder of BEAM (Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective). As May is Mental Health Awareness Month we talked to Yolo about all things mental health, but it didn't stop there. We dug into the radical framework, Social Justice Informed Mental Health Literacy, BEAM uses in their work and why this framework is important to the work they do in our communities. We also talk about Yolo, his story, and how he tries to live in alignment. Press play, tune in, and take out your notepad for this one. You don't wanna miss the gems Yolo was dropping. Lastly, big thanks to Demarco for sharing with us how he divests from patriarchy.
