The UNNI Podcast – w/ Brandon Johnson
“I’m Angry. I’m Hurt. This Is Difficult.”
Brandon Johnson MHW from Baltimore City, U.S., joins the UNNI Podcast Guest list. Brandon shares his passion for prevention work in Faith-Based Communities, Black Communities, and the empowerment of young people. Host Bianca McCall doesn’t hold back, while asking the tough questions — How does the Black Community achieve health and wellness, when there is such a disparity in health equity? How does the Black Community maintain hope, when many are repeatedly traumatized, with almost daily view of racially-motivated murders; by police, and other bigoted groups of people? Brandon shares valuable resources for all who are done “watching” and ready to act in a way which promotes unity and incentivized wellness for survivors with lived experience.
