Bye Bye Teen Suicide with Jackie Simmons

The Small Victories Podcast

The most horrible experience one could live through is someone close to them committing suicide.  With suicide rates up, the media and society are normalizing suicide as an acceptable exit.  In this episode, we’ll be talking with Jackie Simmons who wants to normalize the conversation that intervenes on suicidal thoughts. Takeaways: Every action begins with a thought. Stopping suicide means we must prevent the cause; which is thinking that it is the best option to take. The battles are won and lost in the subconscious mind. Your subconscious is designed to bring about what you think about. You have to be an advocate for yourself, and even when you aren't yet, know that someone out there will stand for you and with you. 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.” Learn more about Jackie Simmons at http://JackieSimmons.com Donations Accepted at https://successjourneyacademy.thrivecart.com/tsps-donations/ https://www.facebook.com/SuccessJourneyAcademy https://www.linkedin.com/in/mindsetisagame/ https://www.facebook.com/gypsyjackie https://www.facebook.com/groups/yourbrainonpositive https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheSuicidePreventionMovement https://twitter.com/MakeItAGreat https://www.instagram.com/jackiesja/--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/pauline-victoria/support
