Having feelings isn't a sign of weakness — they mean we're human, says producer and activist Nikki Webber Allen.

Even after being diagnosed with anxiety and depression, Webber Allen felt too ashamed to tell anybody, keeping her condition a secret until a family tragedy revealed how others close to her were also suffering.

In this important talk about mental health, she speaks openly about her struggle — and why communities of colour must undo the stigma that misreads depression as a weakness and keeps sufferers from getting help.
