Jenna Monaco believes we should remove shame around mental health and is unabashedly tackling the topic head-on. As the Adult Child of an Alcoholic (ACOA), Jenna battled with her own father’s mental health and addiction for the better part of his life. After he passed from organ failure, Jenna suddenly found herself dealing with panic attacks and anxiety. This is where her own self-discovery, healing and advocacy was born.
Jenna Monaco is a stress management mentor for women, self-development writer and the podcast host of Spark Intention. After years of personal work on her own mental health, and witnessing the benefits of self-healing, Jenna has dedicated her life to helping others uncover their life’s mission and guide them through their own healing journey.
Today Jenna and I discuss self-awareness, how to listen to our bodies, tools for anxiety management, and the importance of forgiveness.
Thanks so much for joining me today! I love Jenna's bravery. She tackles the conversation of mental health head-on, and reminds us that the only way out is through. We have to remove stigma, speak openly and ask for help when we need it.
