Music Stars Making A Social Impact: Why & How Jenna Andrews of ‘The Green Room Talks’ Is Helping To Change Our World

Mental health is something that is very important to me as I’ve personally dealt with anxiety for as long as I can remember. As a creative, I’ve found it very difficult to deal with the repercussions of my anxiety and know so many other creatives that go through the same struggles. With that, I decided to create a platform to speak on these issues as I feel that they weren’t being talked about enough. The Green Room represents the element of a backstage or behind the scenes look into the individuals within the entertainment industries that deal with mental health issues on a daily basis and find solace in creating and sharing their stories. In addition, the color green is associated with mental health awareness and I felt that was very fitting when coming up with The Green Room as the title of my platform. Regardless of whether some of our listeners are musicians or not, I think these topics are relatable to people from all walks of life. It’s humans connecting with other humans on real and important topics during such a terrible time with the pandemic, etc. For those that are musicians or heavily involved in music, the platform can be a great way for our guests to connect with their fan bases in a light that they may have never seen before. Ultimately, we all go through our own struggles and sometimes those issues aren’t addressed publicly enough in order to spread awareness. Bringing important topics to our viewers with celebrity / influential guests that are dealing with such issues brings a very raw and genuine message to the forefront. It shows that you’re not alone, no matter what you’re going through or what your status may be; we all have demons and The Green Room is serving as a platform for safe and genuine conversations.
