Wait a minute.  "Hood Disease"?  The CDC (Center for Disease Control) actually made that term official?  What is "hood disease" you ask?  It's something that the CDC estimates that 30% of U.S. youths suffer from a form of post traumatic stress disorder that occurs from frequent trauma.  Gun violence experienced in certain neighborhoods is equivalent to gunfire in war.  It is said to be the cause of a lot of innter city youth not learning.  

Do you agree that living in certain bad neighborhoods is equivalent to Fallujah during war time?  Does the priority to survive, stress in not having money, and struggle to eat healthy cause PTSD?

Owner of her own counseling and consulting service, Brandy J. Flynn, returns to T2Q to give her expert opinion on the validity of the diagnosis as well as discuss other mental health topics. 

All of these things and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!
