Fireflies Unite Podcast With Kea was a weekly podcast from 2018 to 2021 created by suicide survivor T-Kea Blackman. While the podcast has ended, T-Kea leaves the episodes live with hopes that it will continue to erase the mental health stigma and provide resources. The mission of the podcast is to bring light into darkness (just like the fireflies) and encourage black people to seek treatment. We want to show that mental illness does not have "a look"; it includes everyday high-functioning people. The podcast is also designed for people to see how everyday decisions impact their mental health and overall wellness such as finances, relationships, and nutrition.
