Lily Cornell Silver debuted her IGTV series Mind Wide Open today, in honor of her late father, The Soundgarden/Audioslave icon, Chris Cornell. Mind Wide Open is designed to destigmatize the conversations around mental health. Guests in the series include experts in mental health, emotional intelligence, psychology, and wellness, public figures from music, pop culture, and entertainment celebrities.
“As someone who has suffered trauma and loss as well as struggled with anxiety and depression, I know how important it is to have a space to talk openly and without shame about these subjects. There is so much value, especially for people in my generation, in knowing that everyone struggles with mental health at some point in their lives, despite our society’s dismissive tendencies around emotional wellbeing. It is important for me to give voice to these issues by providing information, honest conversations and resources through Mind Wide Open,” said Lilly Cornell Silver.
The second episode, airing on July 27, 2020, will feature Dr. Marc Brackett of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and the author of the bestselling book on Social/Emotional Intelligence, Permission to Feel.
