Inner View: The Healthy Workplace (interview with Tambourine Army’s Black Sauna Radio)


Greetings loves,

Happy Monday! Today’s post is another quick one and my second interview with Tambourine Army / WE-Change Jamaica’s Black Sauna Radio podcast. (You can listen to the first one here in case you missed it). I’m honoured to have been re-invited, representing my blog this time (heyyyyy) and we had a nice little chat about what a healthy workplace should look and feel like.

This topic is dear to my heart, having had a number of unhealthy experiences and I shared my personal take as well as other important tidbits in this Inner View. Plus, mental health at work is the focus of World Mental Health Week 2017, so go ahead and press play, I think you’ll like it.  Continue reading


Interview on Black Sauna Radio: The mental wellness of lesbian, bisexual and transgender women


Happy Monday loves,

Wishing you an amazing, productive, memorable week filled with blessings. Today I’m happy to share with you an interview I did with Black Sauna Radio last evening. It’s a podcast initiative spearheaded by WE-Change JA / The Tambourine Army and I was invited to represent JaMHAN—Jamaica Mental Health Advocacy Network— to discuss “The mental wellness of lesbian, bisexual and transgender women“.

I have to say it was a really good programme and I enjoyed my time there. Please  tune in to watch it live on their page or to Black Sauna Radio on a Sunday evening, they have some great shows, well worth listening!

Consultant/Lecturer/Radio Host Gerry McDaniel Talks #Mentalhealth, Stigma (& what The Bible says about it)


Hi lovelies, happy new week! For today’s #MentalHealthMonday post I’m happy to share with you a very insightful message I received by way of a WhatsApp broadcast that was forwarded to me by a friend, and a short interview with its author, Gerard ‘Gerry’ McDaniel— lecturer, consultant and host and producer of RJR 94 FM’s Palav programme. The message contains wise words (his own perspective) on mental health, the stigma around mental illnesses (and how nonsensical it is) and, most interestingly, what The Bible has to say about it all — I was happy to see it’s quite a bit.

Since he’s a Christian, I found his take on the matter particularly enlightening and refreshing, considering that many other Christians do not share the same sentiments and, due to ignorance, discredit mental illness. Some are known for telling challenged individuals to simply ‘pray harder’ and step up their faith, so his thoughts were a welcome difference. Scroll down to read the excerpt and get acquainted with the wise man who said it all. At the very least, I think you’ll find it interesting too.
