Detroit Youth Rising Podcast: Episode 3
Episode 3 - Mental Health
Just as it’s important for young people to take care of their physical health, it’s also critical for them to take care of their mental health. But there are a lot of misperceptions around the concept of mental health. How does homelessness affect the mental health of youths? What role do families play in mental health? And how has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the mental health of youths in Detroit?
Keisha Jackson, the Founder and Executive Director of Caleb’s Kids, a non-profit that focuses on the mental health of Detroit youths, joins Azaria to talk about this issue.
