This podcast focuses on how to talk to kids about depression, substance misuse, and suicide from my perspective as a mother whose child died by suicide in 2015.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 10 and 34-year-olds, only behind the unintentional injury, in the United States. Much of suicide has a correlation with depression and substance misuse—and while there is an epidemic of teen depression and suicide, only 45% of teen girls and 33% of teen boys who have experienced an episode of depression got treatment in 2019. It’s time to start talking.
Dr. Amy Robbins explores life, death, and what it all means. She has the unique perspective of a clinical psychologist and medium. Life, Death, and the Space Between podcast is consistently ranked in the top iTunes charts for religion and spirituality, self-help, and health. Take this journey with me and Amy Robbins as we talk about being emotionally naked.
I touch on the work I’m doing with digital marketing to save lives at a critical moment through technology. I met Sally in person at the NSA (National Speaker’s Association) Influence Conference and we hit it off. If suicide prevention is an important topic to you, please subscribe to Sally’s podcast. It’s very well done and she is a suicide prevention rock star.

I talk about the trauma of having lost a child and my struggles with having suffered from a brain tumor and the aftermath of the surgeries and radiation treatment.
This is a podcast with Christopher R. Jones from The Authentic Leader Show. When I decided to be a mental health speaker and suicide prevention speaker, it wasn’t easy. Those are topics no one wants to talk about. The world is thawing a bit on the subject of late given the rise in mental illness and suicides. I am sorry it took that to get people to listen. But at least they are.
I’ve done a lot of interviews lately. But this is the one time I could talk almost entirely about my grief. The Dougy Center is a national organization that focuses on grieving children and their families. Their guide to talking to children of any age about a suicide is one of the best I’ve ever read. It comes complete with scripts on what to say to children at any age.
103. New Possibilities for mental health & suicide prevention with Anne Moss Rogers
It’s time to change things up and look at suicide in a whole different way. In an environment where it’s easy to feel lonely, rejected or ignored, one’s sense of well-being is put into question.
Oftentimes, these emotions twist our realities into heavy figures of depression and helplessness. During these times, knowing someone understands your struggles and circumstances could just turn the tables around.

In my trip to Los Angeles to visit my son, I had reached out to Paul Gilmartin, host of the popular podcast, Mental Illness Happy Hour. Initially, I was interested in being a guest.
