Episode #159: From Surviving To Advocating

Join us today as Colleen Interview's Karen K Comba on Take the Leap. In this episode, Karen shares her powerful story as a mental health advocate for children and her journey of overcoming the challenges of growing up with a mother who had schizophrenia. Here are three key takeaways from this inspiring conversation:

  1. Mental Health Advocacy for Children: Karen's story sheds light on the importance of mental health advocacy for children growing up in homes with mental illness. She emphasizes the need for early intervention and support to help children thrive and overcome the challenges they face.
  2. The Impact of Childhood Trauma: Karen's personal experiences highlight the long-lasting impact of childhood trauma on individuals. Her story serves as a reminder of the resilience of children and the importance of providing a safe and supportive environment for them to grow and heal.
  3. Breaking the Stigma: Through her advocacy work and upcoming movie adaptation of her book, Karen is dedicated to breaking the stigma surrounding mental illness, particularly schizophrenia. She encourages open conversations and de-stigmatization to create a more supportive and understanding community for those affected by mental health challenges.

Karen's courage and determination to share her story and advocate for others are truly inspiring. I highly recommend listening to this episode to gain valuable insights and perspective on mental health advocacy and the impact of childhood trauma.
