Taraji P. Henson on Depression, Menopause; Relates to ‘thoughts of taking your life’
Taraji P. Henson visits “The Talk” for a special episode about mental health and she talks candidly about her recent battles with anxiety and depression.” “I just turned 50 and I think a lot of times as women we don't really talk about the mental aspect of perimenopause and menopause. And I get it, black don't crack, and we look good as we age, and a lot of times women try to hold on to their youth, but at the same time, we need to talk about what happens during perimenopause and menopause.” Henson confesses, “I heard you talking earlier Sharon, and everyone on the panel, about you know, having these thoughts of taking your life or even trying, you know, I just had that just recently. And, I was like oh my God, I think I need to have my hormone levels checked. But someone had to tell me, because we just don’t talk about it as women, we don't. And I didn't even know that that was going on. I thought that my depression and my anxiety was getting worse, you know, because of where we are in the world.”

Charlamagne Tha God on Anxiety, Parental Paranoia and Breonna Taylor
Radio personality and New York Times best-selling author Charlamagne tha God appears on a special episode of “The Talk” – “Having The Talk: Mental Health and Wellness,” Thursday, Oct. 8. He opens up about dealing with anxiety and the difference between rational and irrational anxiety. “Rational anxiety can also be parental paranoia. I’ve got three daughters. The natural paranoia I feel with my two oldest is going to school. I’m entrusting them in the hands of adults that I don’t know. I don’t breathe easy until they’re home. An irrational anxiety is literally when I’m at home and I’m thinking it’s about to be a home invasion, like looking out the window for some threat that doesn’t even exist. Then again, when you hear stories like what happened to Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth, you wonder how irrational that anxiety really is, because I’ve thought about those same scenarios before.”
