Part II: Patterns of Misdiagnosis in BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color)
Dr. Caroline Leaf and I unpack BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) mental health issues with a holistic approach

“Holistic” treatment encompasses biological, psychological, and social determinants of health. Social determinants of health include the effects of racism. Let’s talk about it.
