Hello... Randi Jensen here.

Let me be completely honest with you.

             As you will learn in my book,

             "Just Because You're Suicidal Doesn't Mean You're Crazy",

             I was suicidal for twenty-four years, from age 8 to 32.

            
I am a professional counselor and a professional speaker/educator. But more                     importantly, here I am offering you a way to get help, and give help, out of my                     own deeply personal experience.

 

If you are thinking about suicide, understand this:

 

It is not your fault and you don't have to go it alone any more.

 

You are not powerless!

 

Learn how you can get back

into the driver’s seat of your life!

Our Mission Statement

          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suicidality is a spectrum of thought patterns and behaviors including:

                            Thoughts of dying by suicide
                            Plans for dying by suicide
                            Attempts to die by suicide
                            Death by suicide

 

Ideation means thought. Suicidal thought is not just feeling really sad. It is not a matter of wanting to die. Most people who become suicidal do not truly want to die. Instead they want the pain to stop. They feel their situation is untenable, unchangeable and hopeless. While suicidality can be a frightening or taboo subject to many people, those who are dealing with it on a daily basis know that it is very real, painful, and drastically affects every aspect of your life.

 

Suicidality is the result of massive hopelessness. A person is driven to believe that there is only one way to bring relief or cessation of pain. That thought pattern can create an indelible deeply laid neural pathway perpetuated by endorphins supplied by the relieving thoughts themselves. Once the suicidal thought patterns begin - it is very difficult to stop thinking about "not being here". That's because suicidal thought is endorphin-driven and it follows that same neural pathway in the brain over and over again.

 

What exactly are endorphins?

Endorphins are your own internal pain relievers that act like the prescription narcotics morphine and codeine. They produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being. Endorphins are neurotransmitters, chemicals that pass along signals from one neuron to the next. Neurotransmitters play a key role in the function of the central nervous system.  Endorphins are produced as a response to certain stimuli, especially stress, fear or pain. They originate in various parts of your body, the pituitary gland, spinal cord and throughout other parts of the brain and nervous system. Endorphins communicate mainly with receptors in cells found in the brain 

About Suicidality

Suicide has increased 60% worldwide in the last forty-five years. It is the third highest cause of death in youth and adolescents. It is growing alarmingly in numbers among the elder population. Recent reports reveal there are 22 suicides a day among U.S. military veterans and one U.S. active duty service member dies by suicide daily. The numbers of suicides have been overwhelming and treatment has not changed for decades. We are clearly in need of a different paradigm. World War II Medal of Honor recipient, Ted Ruben, stated, “They always say when you save a life, you save maybe a nation – because who knows who he [or she] will become.” We cannot continue with this epidemic loss of life.  We cannot turn away and continue doing what we have always done expecting new or different results. The JSP3© is dedicated to eradicating able-bodied/able-minded suicide throughout the world. We believe that if you leave any person suffering suicidal thought out of the plan for healing, we are doing a disservice to the world’s inhabitants in general.

The JSP3© is a method of suicide prevention based on peer support and education of the psychobiology of suicide. Although, peer support in mental health is well documented and is considered evidence-based practice in suicide prevention, there is no non-stigmatizing peer support program currently being utilized. Now there is The JSP3©, the Jensen Suicide Prevention Peer Protocol which has been saving lives for decades.  With the formalization through publication of the protocol in the book, Just Because You’re Suicidal Doesn’t Mean You’re Crazy: The Psychobiology of Suicide, the method is now available world-wide. 

Every single person in the world can benefit from this peer support protocol.  It does not rely on any particular expertise. The requirements of the members of this protocol are simply honesty and willingness. Honesty is necessary for trust and responsibility. Willingness is required to learn the psychobiology of suicide and proactively partake in the mutual exercise of retraining the suicidal brain. The JSP3© serves all populations and any business or civil concern.
