Episode 38: Mental Health & Aging: What Are We Afraid Of?

Most of us are taught that with #age comes experience, #wisdom, and #lifelessons? All seemingly positive things. But what about the things we dread about #aging: #health concerns, loss of agility and #memory, and a decline in overall #wellbeing. But why are we so afraid of it if we know that we all must experience it? Let's talk about it!

Episode 37: #BowDown: Black Women in Mental Health & Sport

As we we put the #superbowl (#boycottbowl if you're from #NOLA like Dr. Poole) behind us, there's no better #mentalhealth conversation to have than one with three of the most amazing #women working in the worlds of #counseling, #sportpsychology, and #mentalperformance.

Tune in as Dr. Kensa Gunter, Dr. Angel Brutus, and Dr. Nicole Linen join Dr. Poole on #theemeraldcouch to discuss how they got into the field and share some of the same advice they often provide to the #athletes they work with daily on how to stay at the top of their game and live a #balanced and #happy #sports life.
