I'm Fine Podcast: Episode 1 - Equality isn't Guaranteed in Mental Healthcare w/ Ji-Youn Kim

Our guest, Ji-Youn, is a coach and counsellor dedicating her time to unravelling the systemic oppression and racism that impacts North America’s mental health infrastructure through her efforts in advocacy and her clinical practice.

Ji-Youn Kim dedicates her time to unravelling the systemic oppression and racism that impacts North America’s mental health infrastructure through her efforts in advocacy and her clinical practice. Despite most of her education advising her to remain non-political as a professional clinician, she took a huge leap in maintaining her political voice in order to help those in difficult circumstances within the political spectrum. Ji-Youn’s focus on justice-oriented mental healthcare enables her to go deeper into the circumstances of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) populations by exploring additional aspects of trauma that stem from community, culture, and nationality, and how these intersections impact the lived experiences of countless North Americans.
