Through My Mind My Funk Show, multi-award winning mental health consultant, Sitawa Wafula has conversations with people in Africa and of African descent about mental health - from personal journeys and challenges/taboos/myths to resilience and self care as well as advocacy, policy and need for representation and inclusion in the space.
The show - a spin off Sitawa's Google Award winning blog that provided people in Africa with mental health information and support for 8 years - aims to demystify this important but tabooed topic and make these conversations, everyday conversations in African homes.

Businessman Samuel Boiyo takes us back to the onset of his mental health journey and how those early incidents led him to not only drop out of school but also get arrested, twice, and spend 8 months in a mental health institution while awaiting his forensic report. We also discuss the disconnect between the judicial system and mental health and Samuel shares some of the ways he is taking care of himself and his family as he gives tips to people living with mental health conditions that are looking to start families.
