Award Winning Actress, Taraji P. Henson is launching a new talk show on Facebook Watch. The show will highlight mental health specifically within the Black community. Initially entitled, ” Peace of Mind with Taraji”, the show will also feature celebrity interviews, mental health experts and regular everyday people, discussing mental health issues. The show is going to begin filming this year and she will be joined by her best friend, Traci Jade Jenkins.
Jenkins is the executive director of Henson’s non-profit organization, the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation. In 2018, the actress started the company and named it after her late father, who battled with mental health issues, following a tour in Vietnam. The foundation focuses on erasing the stigma about mental health issues in the African-American community. Henson is very passionate about this mission. Each episode will narrow in on a variety of mental health topics.
