About the Series

Jacob Moore is a suicide awareness speaker, a mental health advocate, and the founder of the nonprofit organization NoStigmas. He leads his mental health organization from a place of experience. He’s faced childhood trauma and overcome many mental health obstacles. Now, he teaches others how to manage their own mental health struggles in this enlightening series.

For a long time I was just dependent on the doctors. I was dependent on the drugs. I was dependent on alcohol, on sex, on all these different things to cope. The big shift for me was getting out of this cycle of playing the blame game.
