(Part 1) Demystifying Mental Wellness in the Caribbean Community with Shawna Marie Aarons-Cooke
Shawna Marie Aarons-Cooke is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist who knows the stigma of mental wellness in the Caribbean Community.
In this first installation of a two part episode, Shawna Marie begins to demystify mental wellness and explains:
- How "modeling" and the "messaging" we’ve learnt from our surroundings is a major factor that causes us to look at mental wellness as a weakness or unfavorably.
- The shift to whole health.
- How our perception of mental wellness may cause us to not recognize when we need or the people around us need professional support.
