Over the last two decades, Janey Brown has performed in front of thousands of people, written and published songs with Grammy award-winning and multi-platinum producers, and has coached a variety of artists. She also has years of experience teaching movement, mindfulness and mental resilience to corporate executives, as well as athletes in the NHL, Olympics, NASCAR and MLS.
Deeply concerned with the rising global suicide rates, Brown now deploys her coaching mostly in the field of “mental fitness,” otherwise known as mindset. In 2014, she became a mental health advocate and currently co-leads nonprofit Blu Matter Project’s “Mental Health and Trauma Sensitive Training”, which includes education on addiction, anxiety, depression, and suicide prevention.
It’s no secret to the public that for most of her career, Brown has struggled with mental illness herself due to untreated complex PTSD. Though what was once her fear is now the fuel that operates “Fearce Academy,” a wellness company Brown built to help entertainers, speakers and entrepreneurs manage imposter syndrome and achieve mental health, so they can “radiate confidence in front of any audience.”
Since launching Fearce Academy in 2017, Brown has impacted people of all ages across North America with her mental health education and motivational keynotes. She has appeared on the stages of SXSW and Toronto Metro Convention Centre, as well as on networks such as CityTV, WBTV (CBS) and TSN.
When Brown isn’t coaching or performing, she’s devoted to furthering her University studies in the field of psychology and trauma to better serve her community.
Her mission is simple: To uplift others so they can keep uplifting others.
