AnneMoss joins Janet Allison of the On Boys podcast to talk about suicide, substance misuse, and finding support – and how boys and young men are statistically more at risk and make up over 80% of all youth suicide deaths (ages 10-24). Listen is as they discuss:

  • Warning signs of depression & suicidal ideation
  • Why you should trust your gut
  • Where to get help & support
  • Why you must practice asking, “Are you thinking of suicide?”
  • Why tough love isn’t the necessarily the right choice
  • Giving yourself credit as a parent
  • Mutual care
