In this episode of the podcast, we have Samantha Francis, Founder of Find A Balance talk about mental health, wellness, and the struggles black people face.

She shares personal stories and advice on tackling mental health issues early on and helping those in need. The rising rate of suicide is highlighted, emphasizing the urgent need to address the mental health crisis.

Sam also touches on the importance of schools in promoting mental well-being but also highlights the lack of understanding and support for students with mental health issues.

Pupil referral units (PRUs) are alternative educational institutions used to place students who have been kicked out of mainstream schools for behavioral issues.

Sam emphasizes the importance of addressing trauma early on to prevent more serious issues later in life. This conversation provides a better understanding of mental health issues and the need for better support and education, especially for people from different backgrounds.
