Dr Jenna Kenyani from the Department of Molecular and Clinical Cancer Medicine is a cancer research scientist. Jenna also has three disabilities, Dyslexia, a short term memory problem and severe depression and anxiety.
In this 20 minute talk titled ‘The often unspoken truths about living with a Mental Illness’, Jenna shares her own personal thoughts and feelings of living with depression and anxiety, and her fears about her future career.
“I wanted to give this talk so that anyone suffering or who has suffered would know they are not alone, but I also did it so those who haven’t might start to understand what it is like to suffer and how hard it is. With more understanding I hope that it will lead to more help and support so those suffering no longer feel embarrassed or ashamed to talk and no longer have to suffer alone and in silence.”
