Sharing Personal Stories and a Path To Healing

Where there is darkness, there is an immense opportunity for light.

Like so many, Karena has experienced profound grief and trauma. Growing up with a mother diagnosed with paranoid-schizophrenia, her childhood was filled with traumatic experiences that resulted in repressed emotions of guilt, shame, depression, and eventually, a suicide attempt. Though filled with this darkness, Karena was able to find deep joy. And with The Big Silence, she's creating a space for you to find that joy, too.

Suffering in silence only reinforces the stigma behind mental health issues and builds boundaries that prevent healing. Wherever you are, whatever you're going through, you have a spark of greatness inside of you.

No more embarrassment, no more shame, only healing. This is the best mental health podcast for personal stories of mental resiliency and inspiring conversations about overcoming adversity.
