Podcasts are an excellent way to learn more about mental health issues and common interventions, as many discuss topics like self-care, meditation tips and provide practical strategies for taking care of your well-being.

From Where We Stand: Conversations on Race and Mental Health is hosted by CHUM 104.5 Morning Show co-host Jamar McNeil, Your Morning’s Anne-Marie Mediwake, and the late broadcaster and comedian, Candy Palmater. In conversation with the hosts, guests dive deep into personal stories and mental health challenges facing members of these communities. Anne-Marie Mediwake stopped by to chat about the podcast with Marilyn, including her personal favourite episode and the importance of continuing the conversation on issues many people in racially marginalized communities are facing today.
