Podcast 102: Jason Reid: Teen Suicide “Tell My Story.” – Ryan Reid
“Tell My Story.” – Ryan Reid
Jason (Jay) Reid is doing just that; telling his son, Ryan’s story. Ryan took his life when he was 14, leaving two Post-It Notes: one was the passcode to his computer; the second said “Tell My Story.”
In this podcast we hear from a very brave father who misses his son, wishes he’d been more vulnerable, wishes he’d listened differently. “We need to change the conversation around mental health,” says Jay; “families need to be talking about mental health and asking the right questions.”
Jay has founded an organization called ChooseLife (www.chooselife.org) and is making a documentary to eradicate – not just raise awareness – but ERADICATE teen suicide by the year 2030.
