Building loving relationships has been shown to improve depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. Everyone deserves to have good mental health, be supported and loved. For those who are struggling with their mental health, reaching out and seeking help is a sign of tremendous strength – not a weakness.
This podcast is meant to share the positive effects of love on mental health in African culture and provide guidance on how Africans can support their own path towards being intentional about using healthy coping techniques to deal with the daily challenges and stresses of life.
Things get juicy when Joy from Joy Talks Love and Journalist/Relationship Commentator Nicholas Asingwire examine socio-cultural factors that impact dating and sexual experiences of African men and women. In African culture, we are taught as people, and as a society, that we should find a suitable mate, fall in love, get married, and if you are so inclined, have children, and live happily ever after. The reality is that younger generations who are more liberated are taking different paths and following very non-traditional routes when it comes to dating in general. In this episode, we explore why is it looked down upon if someone takes a different path?
