E P I S O D E 1 8:::You always find a silver lining ~ Brenda Onyango (Kenya)
Brenda Onyango is a psychology student in Nairobi and the founder of Mental is Human Too - a mental health awareness campaign.
On the show, Brenda shares how a minor in Psychology during her undergrad and practicum hours at Kenya's mental health teaching and referral hospital - Mathari Hospital, inspired her to get into the mental health space. She also shares her first projects - a song which you can sample on the show and a documentary on 3 people in Kenya living with mental health conditions - PTSD, Depression and Post Partum Psychosis (the documentary is available on Youtube).
We also talk about the process of coming up with the documentary and challenges early stage mental health start ups/advocates face.
During the quick fire session, she lists Caroline Mutoko and Taraji P Henson among the people she would like to work with and also puts me on the hot seat by asking me 1 quick question...catch all this and much more in this week's edition of My Mind My Funk show.
