Taraji P. Henson Is Launching A Talk Show Focused On Mental Health
Taraji P. Henson is teaming up with Facebook Watch for a new talk show. Per BET, Peace of Mind will “shine a spotlight on the challenging mental health issues that are particular to the Black community.” Tracie Jade Jenkins will co-host the show.
Every week, the pair will sit with celebrities, experts, and everyday people. They will show support within the mental health community and bringing awareness to topics to eliminate some of the stigmas surrounding them.
In a press release about Peace of Mind, Henson states, “I’ve long been a mental health advocate for the Black community and created the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in 2018 that has provided resources to thousands of people who are struggling. I’m looking forward to bringing this new talk series to Facebook Watch, where I can continue to create conversation around an issue that is near and dear to my heart.”
Mina Lefevre, Head of Development & Programing for Facebook Watch, adds, “The work Taraji has done in the mental health space is inspiring, and we’re thrilled to have her come to our platform to educate and entertain around this incredibly important topic. One of our strengths at Facebook Watch is building community and conversation around topics people care about, and we’re looking forward to taking this journey together.”
Peace of Mind is set to premiere later this year.
