Taraji P. Henson is set to host a new talk show, “Peace of Mind With Taraji,” on Facebook Watch.

“I’ve long been a mental-health advocate for the black community, and created the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in 2018 that has provided resources to thousands of people who are struggling,” she said in a statement.

Each episode will feature interviews with celebrities and everyday people, as well as mental-health experts. “I’m looking forward to bringing this new talk series to Facebook … where I can continue to create conversation around an issue that is near and dear to my heart,” she said.

The “Empire” star named her foundation after her father, Boris, who suffered from mental-health issues stemming from his experiences during the Vietnam War.

Meanwhile, Henson is also set to appear on an upcoming “Empire” spinoff.
