Who's At Your Table?, with Christina Cernansky

Christina says: "Let's breakdown the barriers of stigma and allow people to come out from the shadows of their struggles to thrive!"

Christina is executive director with NAMI Wood River Valley, chapter of the National Alliance for Mental Illness.

She is helping to breakdown the barriers of stigma. She helped her local affiliate to launch a StigmaFree campaign, a golf outing, Journey to Wellness art show, and biking for mental wellness community-wide bike events in the Wood River Valley in southern Idaho. Her proudest achievement was being the co-founder of the Bluebirds, teen support group. Sharing that "even when you're feeling down and blue, remember you will fly" to help prevent suicide in youth. She has encouraged her community to start to normalize the conversation around mental health and well-being and to allow the space to talk about not only our physical health but also our mental health. 

In this interview with Kirstin Gooldy and Mark Stinson, Christina offers very personal and very insightful stories about the impact of struggles with mental illness.
