This season of The Filter podcast is focusing on lessons learned during moments of crisis.

In this episode, hosts Ieshia Downton and Vicky Diaz-Camacho have a conversation with two licensed therapists, Breora Page and Dr. Rebeca Chow, who share what they’ve seen over the past 18 months. Dr. Chow specializes in play therapy with a focus on helping children and families. Page specializes in helping support folks with trauma linked to domestic violence.

Plus, we sat down with Cecil Wattree, founder of the Black Mental Health Initiative and a social worker, who says barriers to getting help are sometimes as basic as not having a ride to a therapist’s office. His solution? Help should come to them.
