Stop Teen Suicide with Jackie Simmons

 

 

TEDx speaker, Radio Show Host, International Best-selling Author, Resilience Master, and co-founder of the Teen Suicide Prevention Society, Jackie Simmons is best known for her mission to “Stop Teen Suicide.”
In 1995, blindsided by her 14-year-old daughter’s suicide attempt, Jackie entered a world of depression, addictions, medical mysteries, and deadly silences.

The journey into the world of mental health services and cultural taboos left Jackie feeling lost and alone.

“OK” on the outside, with “really, I’m fine,” her most frequent response to inquiries about how she was doing.  Jackie hid her deep, psychic wounds from the world behind a façade of frantic entrepreneurial activity.

Then on August 3, 2019, Jackie’s now 37-year-old daughter, broke the silence. Jackie wasn’t ready. She calls August 3, 2019 the day her “purpose tapped her on the shoulder.”

Please join me as I interview Jackie and we go on the journey that launched the mission to stop teen suicide.

This episode is expected to launch on the 16th December at 5am Queensland time.
