Today, Adwoa Aboah’s mental health organization Gurls Talk releases a new episode of the second season of The Gurls Talk Podcast. The latest episode sees Adwoa in conversation with one of the defining young women of 2020, Dua Lipa.
On the heels of her number one album, Future Nostalgia, Dua Lipa joins host and founder of Gurls Talk Adwoa to talk about a variety of topics including how she is coping with lockdown, her need to take a break from social media, the pressure of staying productive, and being a young woman in the music industry. In this episode, Adwoa and Dua reflect together on how vital creativity is in helping to process emotions and the importance of staying connected to one another at such an isolating time.
“I think collectively we’re going through quite a traumatic period. Just staying inside and doing your part is enough and I think more people need to hear that” – Dua Lipa
The Gurls Talk Podcast engages experts, activists, thought-leaders, and those with lived experience to create a new approach to mental health that’s inclusive and progressive. Season Two will see host and Founder of Gurls Talk Adwoa in conversation with the likes of Dua Lipa, Clara Amfo, Lucy Sheridan, Megan Barton-Hanson and Gurls Talk’s Chief Clinical Advisor, Dr. Ciara Dockery, amongst others.
Speaking on the launch of the new season, Adwoa explains:
“We are launching our new season of the Gurls Talk Podcast during an uncertain and scary time. Now, more than ever, it is important to create safe spaces that encourage open and honest conversations about mental health with no judgment or shame. I hope this season provides a good mix of resources, support, and entertainment to all those out there navigating their mental health journeys and helps listeners feel less alone.”
