Actress and mental health advocate Taraji P. Henson new talk show tackles mental health in the Black community.
“Peace of Mind with Taraji” debuts Monday, Dec. 14th on FaceBook Watch.
The single mother who is doing the damn thing! is joined by her best friend and co-host Tracie Jade to “shine a spotlight on the challenging mental health issues facing us today – particularly of those in the Black community,” according to a press release about the talk show. “Through personal interviews with both celebrities, experts and everyday people, the series will show how to provide support, bring awareness and help eliminate the stigmas of mental health issues.”
Two episodes will premiere each week; one on Mondays and another on Wednesdays. The Monday episodes will feature discussions with celebrity guests and everyday people, while the Wednesday episode will take a deeper dive into the various issues raised in the week’s previous episode with licensed therapists to help unpack and understand how to properly process it all.
Actress Gabrielle Union is featured on the premiere episode about PTSD that airs Monday. Union shares how being raped at gunpoint sparked her condition and why 2020 has been so triggering.
Other celebs who are set to be featured on the show are Mary J. Blige and Tamar Braxton.
Peace of Mind with Taraji airs 9am PT/12pm ET on FaceBook Watch.
