Hey Housewives! In honor of National Suicide Prevention Week, we thought it would be a great opportunity to re-release our episode with the founders of #GiveMe20 BJ & Sylvia. If you haven't already, be sure to check out the resources here at the bottom of these show notes. We also encourage you to share this episode on your social media feed this week (and tag us)! You never know who needs these reminders.

Trigger warning: This episode is on suicide and suicide prevention. We discuss the loss of two teens and give hope and helpful resources for suicide prevention.

Join us as we have a candid conversation with two mothers who are turning their pain into a greater purpose.

Statistics show, often teens are choosing to end their life in a snap decision. Lost in a moment of darkness, many teens go from thinking about suicide to acting on it in less than 20 minutes. Just 20 minutes to decide life isn’t worth living. Both families realized they had to do something to educate teens and the people who love them. #GiveMe20 was born.

Two amazing Kansas City area teens, 17 year old Chad Harrell and 16 year old Regan Johnson, tragically ended their lives in 2017. Both teens were happy and making plans for tomorrow, next week, next year... yet both teens ended their lives suddenly and without warning. Their moms, Sylvia Harrell and BJ Thomas Wilson, joined together through the common bond of losing a child, began to ask questions and research things that would have helped their children.

We were so honored to have BJ & Sylvia share their stories, hearts and resources with us for this episode.

“Suicide doesn’t end the pain, it transfers all the pain to the ones you love.” -Sylvia
