In this epsiode Tosh and I discuss how to recognize burn out, from his own story and how to prevent it and deal with it. 10th October 2020 marks World Mental Health Day. This comes at a time when our daily reality has changed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The challenges we have faced in the past few months have been considerable; the excessive fear and anxiety of the unseen virus, students all across the country adapting to no-school or online classes, limited contact with family members or close friends, the loss of livelihoods and loved ones and the strain on health-care workers. All this has increased our awareness of our own mental health. And makes it clear that psycho-social support will increase exponentially in the coming months and years. This year’s objective for WMHD is greater investment and access to mental health care and Inuka Wellness Kenya is collaborating with Living Truthfully to make your life better. Inuka is a digital wellbeing app that is available on WhatsApp and provides anonymous mental and emotional support through certified coaches on your phone through chat, at anytime and anywhere.

Uncle Kamande has always been one of my coolest uncles, had this airport gig that had him in sunglasses and a walkie talkie, as a kid nothing could be cooler. He was a basket baller too, and he and his crew including another uncle of mine had the kind of relationship you wished you had with your boys. This coolness did not shield him from the same pain and tragedy that we all go through. In this episode, he bares it all, the way you wish your uncle would. Listen, share and feedback.

this has been by far the best episode I've listened to so far. I found myself in a psychiatric hospital early this year and I'm still struggling but I'm glad I learned things can get better.
