On today's show, we are speaking with Shanon Williams, local activist and the founder of Selfcare Housekeeping, a mental health home care service. Shanon discusses how her personal experience with trauma, gaslighting, and mental illness gave her the motivation to start Selfcare Housekeeping, as well as the importance of intersectionality in mental health and social justice spaces. She also talks about the impacts of negative media representation, erasure, and the tokenization of the Black community in Pittsburgh and beyond. Tune in to learn more!
