Charlamagne Tha God Discusses His Successful Approach To Therapy


The stigma of mental health problems has plagued the African-American community for many decades with attitudes finally looking as though they are changing due to a number of high profile black males admitting to their own struggles. Rapper and radio personality, Charlamagne Tha God recently opened up about his own mental health issues in a discussion with fellow artist, Kanye West and in his book, “Shook One”.

In recent interviews, Charlamagne Tha God has been open about his own problems with anxiety which have affected him since childhood. One of the main areas of assistance for the rapper has been in seeking to discuss his problems through therapy sessions he now recommends for any individual who feels they are struggling with their own mental health. The changing attitude towards mental health issues has been highlighted by the interview between Kanye West and Charlamagne Tha God on the nationally-syndicated, “The Breakfast Club” morning show.

Both Charlamagne Tha God and Kanye West were expected to take part in an upcoming “TimesTalk” discussion sponsored by The New York Times. However, Charlamagne Tha God canceled the event citing the erratic behavior of West in recent weeks not allowing for the meaningful discussion needed to take place. The event was designed to heighten awareness of the key aspects of mental health issues in the African-American community, but Charlamagne Tha God believes the recent discourse expressed by Kanye West makes it difficult for a fair and balanced discussion to take place. Many observers also believe the recent Oval Office rant by West claiming he threw out his prescription medication and was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder were major stumbling points for Charlamagne Tha God moving forward with the discussion.
