EP 32 | Mental Health vs. The Musician w/ Naiylah Warren

May 23, 2018



LISTEN TO THE EPISODE:


While music is often viewed as a source of therapy, not much gets said about the overwhelming pressure that gets put on musicians by being in the industry. Sure the music they create helps us through difficult times as fans, but what about their well-being? Who is responsible for checking in with them? So in honor of #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth we caught up with Brooklyn Magazine's '30 Under 30' alum Naiylah Warren, a Marriage and Family Therapist who focuses on drug and substance abuse counseling. We discussed the importance of seeking therapy and the impact social media has on musicians' mental health.
