She is an advocate for mental health she shares her perspective as a daughter & as a survivor. On this episode we really dive into her experiences of growing up with a mother who suffered from chronic mental illness and her own struggles with mental health and wanting to take her own life. Hers is an inspirational story of growing through the challenges and learning what she needed to prosper in life rather than just survive. I love that Gena frames the difficult times in life as an adventure. She believes we all want someone to listen and to have someone see what we feel the rest of the world refuses to see, and to gift each other the freedom of choice.
Things she can’t live without are days enjoying her farmhouse porch swing and sharing a bottle of wine with her bestie in their backyards or on a spur of the moment trip to Italy. She believes we all want someone to listen, to have someone see what we feel the rest of the world refuses to see, and to gift each other the freedom of choice.
