Show Notes

The Check-In is a monthly episode that focuses on fine-tuning our mental health and well-being with the support of Afros and Knives' therapist in residence, Jnee Hill. This month I introduce you to Jnee Hill and we touch on just a few topics you can expect to dive deeper into in upcoming episodes. Black women have worked tirelessly to improve their communities. Their activism has led to a more just and equal society, but they still face systematic oppression that prevents them from achieving full equality. One of the most pervasive forms of oppression that black women face is mental health. Even though only about 9% of the U.S. population suffers from a serious mental illness, 51% of black women deal with one or more diagnosable mental disorders. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that the number of Americans with a mental illness is growing and that many of these patients are minorities. This is because of the increased stress that accompanies the changing roles of women in our society and the social isolation that comes with it.

This series will spend time looking at a space Black women often occupy--entrepreneurship. Being an entrepreneur is hard. Really hard. It can be lonely, isolating, and stressful. But the rewards can be great, too. Once you’ve made the decision to take the plunge and start your own business, you’ll find yourself facing many challenges. However, with persistence and hard work, the rewards can be tremendous. You may also find it difficult to discuss your struggles as an entrepreneur, especially with friends and family. Anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues can make it difficult for you to reach out for help. Don’t feel like you are alone. Many successful entrepreneurs have dealt with similar struggles, and they overcame them to become successful.
