Hip-Hop star G Herbo joined Taraji P. Henson for her Facebook Watch series, Peace of Mind with Taraji.
In the episode titled “PTSD with Rapper G Herbo: Not Just from Combat,” the two discuss how G Herbo suffers from PTSD as a result of growing up around gun violence. The impact on his life has led him to utilize his platform to help Black men that are in need of mental health services. Also in the episode, Community activist Harry Bell shares how witnessing multiple shootings left him struggling with alcohol and suicidal thoughts. Therapist Isha Metzger sheds light on the personal and community impacts of gun violence, and how these life-threatening weapons specifically cause harm to the Black community.
