17. Self-Care, Mental Health & the Privilege of Not Giving a F*ck

No F*cks Given Podcast - May 18, 2021 - 37:59

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and inspired by listener emails, today’s episode features an important conversation about how our relative levels of privilege affect our access to “wellness”—including self-care and mental health care and of course, the ability to not give a f*ck, depending on where you fall on the spectrum. Sarah approaches these complex and nuanced issues with empathy and humor, probably also making some missteps along the way, but ultimately in hopes of using her own privilege to raise awareness about all of it and offer ideas, inspiration, and support to those who can’t easily access it anywhere else. As always, listen to the end for the NFG tip of the week! Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Radio.com, or wherever you get your podcasts. New episode every Tuesday.
