The Big Silence: Destigmatizing Mental Health Issues with Karena Dawn HEAL with Kelly

    • Mental Health

In honor of Mental Health month, we close out May with a new episode of the HEAL with Kelly Podcast. In this deeply moving conversation, I sit down with Karena Dawn, New York Times best-selling author of The Big Silence: A Daughter's Memoir of Mental Illness and Healing and the visionary founder of Tone It Up, the world's largest female fitness platform and nutrition company. Karena's life has been shaped by profound challenges, beginning with her mother's diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia when she was just 11 years old. Raised amidst the complexities of severe mental illness, Karena endured a series of adverse and traumatic experiences, eventually overcoming her own situational depression.
In this candid discussion, Karena shares insights into growing up with a mentally ill parent and the impact it had on her psyche, health, and life. She reflects on her journey towards healing and self-discovery, highlighting pivotal moments that inspired her to become a leading advocate for mental wellness. After her mother's passing in September 2021, Karena furthered her mission to destigmatize mental health issues as she now actively works to provide vital resources for those supporting loved ones in similar situations. Tune in to discover Karena's inspiring journey from darkness to empowerment, and find resonance in her message of reclaiming life and purpose.
