Prioritizing Mental Health Awareness With Dr. Akindele Kolade
– By Dani Reeves
Board-certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Dr. Akindele Kolade, MD has observed a lot in his 25 + years of experience. However, no one had plans for a global pandemic. Dr. Kolade treats many patients; including being certified in Addiction Medicine, however, he focuses on child and adolescent psychiatrists.
“It was very important to me to find a way to continue to see these families without having to make a trip to my office during Covid.” He says. Although he still sees his patients in his office, he finds that this system he has developed over the past year could possibly help his patients more effectively. “I am calling them in their homes now. This allows me to see how they are living which helps me understand them more.” Kolade says.
Dr. Kolade has dedicated his life to mental health awareness and because he knows how powerful the media can be he founded ProAscella Productions and Films. Movie producer and actor in his debut movie “Loving Daniella”, Kolade has been able to reach a larger audience while bringing light to mental health in Africa. Dr. Kolade is passionate about promoting and encouraging the arts in Africa and hopes that ProAscella can help future artists share their dreams as well.
