- Helping Others Survive the Suck w/ Ryan Nesbit Haley DeGreve 53:08
We are edging the end of season 2 and I know many of you are — dare I say — in the suck. Don’t worry, I am too. That’s why I’m bringing a good friend of mine on the pod, Ryan Nesbit.
Ryan is the co-chair of Iowa’s Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, is a QPR suicide prevention trainer, and founded “Alive & Running Iowa” for suicide awareness and prevention.
For most of his adult life, Ryan has worked tirelessly to bring suicide prevention strategies to communities across Iowa. He and his best friend, Rodger, grew up on farms in northeast Iowa, near Dunkerton. In 1991, at age 15, Rodger died by suicide.
Through Ryan’s own hills and valleys, he’s worked hard to get to where he is today. He’s survived the suck and he’s here to tell you how.
