ON TiLT | The State of Black Mental Health and Policing in America

We’re wrapping up Minority Mental Health Month with a focus on Simone Biles recently sitting out of the Tokyo Olympics due to struggles with mental health. Simone joins Naomi Osaka, and others as one of the world’s top Black athletes who have started to open up about their mental health struggles. Julius and Mama Brown’s discussion will focus on how the media and fans put unrealistic expectations on Black athletes to perform under pressure, and how some people don’t think they should allow mental health challenges to impact their athletic participation. ON TiLT | The State of Black Mental Health and Policing in America is podcast focused on ways black people can maintain good mental health despite being affected by the brutal policing in America. ON TiLT is co-hosted by Julius Boatwright, Founder & CEO of Steel Smiling Pittsburgh, and Dannielle Brown, Founder and CEO of The Marquis Jaylen Brown Foundation.
