Svetlana Chernienko joins me on the show to share her prolific and epic story. Svetlana is a domestic abuse survivor and mental health advocate. Having battled with mental health herself and surviving suicide gives her a very real experience of how important bringing awareness to mental health is. Svetlana has a massive presence on social media and in the news media given her courage and absolute strength to bring conversation to a topic that still very much today is surrounded with stigma.
