Protecting Your Peace - A Conversation with NAMI Exec. Director Natasha Pierre

On the heels of World Mental Health Day (Sat. 10/10), we have a chance for another important talk with Natasha Pierre, Executive Director of NAMI Hillsborough (Tampa). NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the largest grassroots organization focusing on mental health, mental illness and advocacy.

She talks about the importance of protecting our peace, acknowledging our feelings during this tough time (pandemic, social unrest, job loss) and being unapologetic about meeting our own needs and self-care.

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
