My guest for this episode is Katie Miller. Katie is a compassionate Trauma Healing and Resolution Guide. She has mentored over 250 youths, emphasizing the significance of embracing their personal pause button. As Assistant Director and Co-Founder of the Teen Suicide Prevention Society, she strives to eliminate the need for suicide intervention programs, fostering hope and positive change.

Katie equips individuals with tools to overcome struggles and nurture positive mental states, bringing holistic transformation and a beacon of hope to all she reaches.

Katie got into nonprofit work accidentally when one of her sisters gave a 7-minute talk about her multi-suicide attempts, wanting to get the tools into the hands of teens before they need them. This was the event that launched the Teen Suicide Prevention Society by Katie’s family (her mom and sisters).

Katie is a high school graduate who loves to read. She also loves to dance like no one is watching and sing like no one is listening. And she occasionally builds with Legos.

Here’s what to expect during the episode:

  • What innovative approaches have nonprofit organizations developed to engage at-risk populations and provide effective suicide prevention support?
  • How did the founder’s experience with the teen suicide prevention society inspire them to transition to becoming an entrepreneur?
  • What types of tools are most effective in helping teenagers manage stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges?
  • How is the personal pause button designed to help individuals manage stress, anxiety, and overwhelm in real-time situations?
  •  What other mindfulness techniques can someone employ to reduce stress and stay grounded?
