Dear Diaspora

Oct 18, 2022

It’s great to be back – thanks for tuning in to this special episode with guest Alice Mills Mai! Alice is a licensed mental health counselor, researcher, entrepreneur, and proud daughter of Ghanaian immigrants. Tune in to hear about:  

  • Her journey becoming a mental health professional after realizing nursing wasn’t for her
  • Why there’s still so much stigma surrounding mental health in many African immigrant communities
  • Healing practices inherent to many African cultures that we may not regard as mental health practices (when they actually are)
  • Immigration being a traumatic experience and the concept of cultural homelessness
  • Her advice on navigating breakups, how to know when it’s time to start therapy, and more
