Watch for the
A PROFESSORS PERSPECTIVE ON MENTAL HEALTH
My name is Shelita M Shaw. I am a tenured professor who has been teaching 20 years. I am on sabbatical throughout the rest of 2022 to address/research Mental Health in Higher Education. My goal is to take this time to nurture a better understanding of the way young adults, specifically ages 18-25, experience mental health; Then help train their minds to “go the other way” ( a slogan I am infamous for on my campus). More specifically, I would like to teach them this simple truth that has impacted my own life: Wherever the mind goes, the body follows.
In this episode, Shelita shares her story of growing up in a family strong in their faith, and her journey into developing language around her mental health. As a leader and teacher by nature she shares with honesty and authenticity about the power of journaling, prayer, and the deep connection between the mind and the body.
