May is Mental Health Awareness month. In this episode we invite our previous guest, Tabitha Kaguri, who is a practicing Therapist and a PhD candidate to talk about challenges faced by individuals dealing with mental illness and what those around them can do to help.

Tabitha is founder and CEO of the Edja Foundation (edjafoundation.org)that has a mission of combating child abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence in Sub-Saharan Africa.
