About Kennedy Brown: Kennedy Brown is the Program Director for A.R.C. Angels Foundation which is a non-profit for youth suicide prevention and mental health awareness that was created to celebrate the life of Avery Reine Cantor. Kennedy had her own personal struggles with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts in high school. She played soccer with Avery and after her passing knew she wanted to help others that are struggling. She wants to be the light for others to help find their way out of the dark.
In this episode, Jennie and Kennedy discuss:
- Anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts.
- Recognizing friend groups, quality relationships, and support systems.
- Behavior and verbalization red flags that you may hear from your child.
- Resources that you can turn to and utilize.
- Crisis Text Hotline: Text HOME to 741741
- You don’t always notice when someone is struggling emotionally.
- If you see a change in your child’s personality it may be a red flag that they are dealing with an internal battle and need help.
- Err on the side of caution, there’s no harm in being overly cautious.
“Anxiety and depression looks different for everyone.” — Kennedy Brown
