Molly Tschang talks with Jason Reid, a successful leader, entrepreneur and CEO coach who became an activist on a mission to end teen suicide after the tragic loss of his 14-year-old son.
May is Mental Health Awareness month, and Jason, who lost his 14-year-old son to suicide, is determined to reach every parent and every family about the conversation they need to be having with their kids.
I think we can all agree that when we were kids, things were much different than they are today. Most of us probably spent our days racing our bikes, building forts, and chasing frogs around the pond.
On this week’s episode of the LA Weekly Weekly podcast, Host and Publisher Brian Calle sits down with his longtime friend Jason Reid for a deep and emotionally charged conversation about teen suicide.
The group has launched a program geared toward parents and educators to treat children’s mental health.
“Parents and teachers have tried to outsource kids’ mental health, but there simply aren’t enough therapists in the U.S. to deal with the current crisis,” noted Reid, a successful entrepreneur who initiated this program after the tragic suicide of his 14-year-old son
Jason Reid is the founder of ChooseLife.org, a leading youth mental health advocate, and a father who lost his teenage son to suicide.
