From left to right: Hakima, Hamdah and Laila who created the Somali Mindfulness Podcast to help their local community open up about their mental health.
For many of us, opening up about mental health struggles is a tough, but necessary, conversation.
And Cymru Citizens UK leaders Hakima, Hamdah and Laila are helping their local Somali community do just that. They are the creators and hosts of the Somali Mindfulness Podcast, a safe space where they discuss a range of issues relating to mental health.
We spoke to Hakima about the inspirations to create the podcast, how older generations are dealing with their own trauma, and her number one tip for anyone struggling with their mental health right now.
