Oppression, Race, and Mental Health with Brandon J. Johnson – Episode 15

In this episode of BHT, Brandon J. Johnson joins Dr. Graham Taylor as an advocate for black mental health in a discussion around oppression, race, and mental health. Oppression is centered on the control of a group of people and it’s happening on multiple levels of power. Recent events remind us that racism isn’t over and that it is something trauma-based that’s etched into the psyche of our nation. We invite all to individually, and as a community, to look at this collective unconscious and to understand our behavior and the impact of oppression.
