Mental Health

The Local Take acknowledges July as National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month by speaking with Dr. Sheila Williams  about her life journey that led her to a career in the mental health.  

She shares that her mother was diagnosed with clinical depression. Growing up she understood that something was wrong with her mother, but she was repeatedly misdiagnosed.

The Local Take will promote Men's Health in June, culminating with our Men's Community Health Forum on Saturday, June 25 at Northlake Mall from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.  We start this month talking about mental health and surviving traumatic events.   On Saturday, June 4 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take, I'll talk with C. David Moody, well-known, longstanding Atlanta developer.   His name adorns construction sites from Mercedes Benz Stadium to the Atlanta History Center.  He's also the victim of childhood sexual abuse. He recently wrote a book about his journey entitled Fighting Through The Fear.
