OBP: Mental Health Impacts on Mothers & Children During the Pandemic, Voting Rights Under Threat, and the Benefits of Being Outdoors
This week, I welcomed the co-hosts of The Double Shift podcast, Katherine Goldstein and Angela Garbes (pictured above), on Sippin’ the Political Tea to talk about the impact the pandemic had on moms’ mental health, and how they can begin to recover. New York Times Opinion columnist Jamelle Bouie shared his views on the latest voting rights legislation, and why he decided to take full parental leave this year for the birth of his second child. Dr. Miguelina Germán, a child behavioral health specialist, gave an overview of how children have fared this past year, and what we have to look forward to with schools reopening. And camp counselor and Black Outside director Angelica Holmes shared her personal and professional experience with the benefits of outdoor activities for Black girls.
