LISTEN, below: Mental Health & Suicide Awareness. Local Musician Jackie Bradley Shares her Personal Story with Teri

Jackie lost a friend who took his own life by suicide a few years ago. Since that time, she has become outspoken about the need for an increase in suicide prevention, along with  awareness about mental health, and how the two are inter-connected.. Jackie also wrote and debuted a musical, "Comet Boy," in honor of her friend.

Listen below to hear more from Jackie. You can also read the story I wrote about her for Maximum Ink Music Magazine, here.

I am also fortunate to work at a group of radio stations with a year-round commitment to ending the stigma surrounding mental health issues. You can find more resources from our parent company Entercom / RADIO.COM, here.

Please take a moment to listen to Jackie's interview, and don't be afraid to talk to someone if you are having problems. Together, we can raise the awareness needed for better mental health, for everyone.
