Episode 326: I Was Born Afraid - Jenny Jaffe

Postby SpookyGhost » April 15th, 2017, 3:12 pm

The comedic writer/performer and mental health advocate who started www.projecturok.org shares about the tremendous support she received from her family when depression anxiety and OCD had her close to suicide by age 10, and even more despondent from 15-17. Her story is a great example of parental support, the power of coping skills, and proof that even people from safe supportive homes with no trauma in their lives can suffer from mental illness because the issue is often one of chemical imbalance.

I loved Jenny Jaffe, she was so honest about her struggles and I admire her greatly. She was a really really good guest.
