Shawn Astin

Chief of Staff and Producer

After losing a friend to suicide and having another struggling with suicidal ideations, I decided that I could use my skills as a media professional to share my voice about the rise in suicides and bullying. I created a simple PSA video, which is how I met Brandy. Since then I have been an advocate for mental health and suicide prevention, especially among teens, using the connections I have and my own personal experiences to further the work of Promise2Live.
