Mental health: patient perspective

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

We often hear from mental health professionals about the benefits of therapy, but we don’t really hear it from the opposite end, from the person receiving therapy. Jillian Whitaker, with Better Black News, talks with Joshua A. Busby, who once was a person that didn’t necessarily think seeking treatment was for him. In this interview, you will learn what urged him to make his initial appointment and why he thinks others should go, too.


Better Black News was birthed from the frustration of negative images of African American people and the politics of conformity. Jillian Whitaker created a platform to highlight her community while informing people of things they can use in their daily lives.
