Why Hollywood Must Tackle Mental Health?: Featuring Giants Cast Member Vanessa Baden Kelly
1 day ago
Where are my late 80's & early 90’s babies? Kea had the pleasure of interviewing Vanessa Baden Kelly. She formerly played in some of our favorite 90’s children TV Shows such as Kenan & Kel and Gullah Gullah Island. Listen as Kea and Vanessa tackle mental health in Hollywood and the importance of Hollywood showing images with people of color with mental illness. Vanessa currently plays the character Journee who battles bipolar disorder on Giants, which is executive produced by FOX’s Empire Jussie Smollett and airs on HBO’s Insecure star Issa Rae YouTube Channel.

Amazing advice! Great episode!
This episode really hit home to me. I've never been a person who set New Year resolutions or anything like that. Kea focused on the necessity of making it a monthly, not yearly solution to focus on our mental health and wellness. I am working on making my goal now. The first is to set 30 minutes aside a day to focus on my dream and to write it down. I will also make sure that I get a monthly massage and facial. Something that I never do unless it's gifted. I will make myself a priority. Kea, thank you for this episode and for focusing on our community!
