Breaking the Cycle of Teen Suicide
Jane Merskey Leder
Author Jane Merskey Leeder and I talk about the serious issue going on, of teen suicide. Which to my surprise, is not only happening in our children's high schools but also a growing number for middle school aged children as well.⠀
As someone who is a survivor of her brother who lost his battle to suicide, Jane not only knows this pain first hand but has been researching, writing and talking to teens about this for 30 years. We talk about the show 13 Reasons Why, Logic's song featuring the suicide hotline, how we can make sure not to miss the signs and more.⠀
As much as we would love to take a bullet for our kiddos, the school year is approaching and we can't protect them from bullies, comparison, or the pressures our kids can sometimes feel. This is a good listen y'all. Link is in the bio.
