|Johnny’s Ambassador: Laura Stack||For 30 years, Laura Stack was best known in the business world as “The Productivity Pro.” Her career as
a keynote speaker, bestselling author of eight books, and corporate spokesperson came to a screeching
halt on November 20, 2019, when her 19-year-old son, Johnny, died by suicide after becoming psychotic
from dabbing high-THC marijuana concentrates. Laura responded by forming the nonprofit, Johnny’s
Ambassadors, to educate parents, teens, and communities about the dangers of today’s high-THC
marijuana on adolescent brain development, psychosis, and suicide. Her platform now brings prevention
education to drug prevention conferences, community groups, and schools to stop youth marijuana use.
Johnny’s story has been told in People Magazine, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the
Epoch Times, the Ingraham Angle, the Untold Story with Martha MacCallum, and PBS. Laura is the
recipient of the Drug-Free America Foundation’s Moxie Award for protecting youth from substances, the
Leadership in Advocacy Award from the National Speakers Association, and the American Association of
Suicidology’s Loss Survivor of the Year Award. Laura is a powerful speaker who brings Johnny’s personal
warning and solid research together in her book, The Dangerous Truth About Today’s Marijuana: Johnny
Stack’s Life and Death Story. Described as a force of nature
|Laura Stack’s 19-year-old son, Johnny, died by suicide on November 20, 2019 after becoming psychotic from dabbing high-THC marijuana concentrates. Soon afterward, Laura started a 501c3, Johnny’s Ambassadors, to educate parents and teens about the dangers of today’s high-THC marijuana on adolescent brain development, mental illness, and suicide. In this session, Laura will share the story of Johnny’s marijuana addiction from a parent’s point of view, a poignant chronicle of the shocking descent from innocence to eventual suicide. Before marijuana, Johnny was a computer whiz with a 4.0 GPA and a perfect math score on the SAT. After marijuana, he stole his family dog from the home and threatened to kill it without payment from his mother. With moving candor, Laura traces the first warning signs, their attempts at rehabilitation, her desperation, and his eventual demise. Three days before his death, Johnny issued his own warning about marijuana usage. Through this tragic, transparent tale, Stack hopes to use her pain to help parents talk to their children about the dangers of today’s marijuana|

But what we may never know is the level of negative effects the isolation of the past two years has had on our overall mental health. Some recent studies have shown that children have seen a dramatic increase in cases of depression during the Covid-19 pandemic. We know less about how the isolation has contributed to adult mental health and how that can affect the family dynamic. Men, in particular, are even more susceptible to succumbing to mental health challenges due to socialization that teaches us that real men don’t suffer or seek help. This leads to higher incidences of depression and suicide rates. One thing is for certain, when we are together, we are healthier. This session is part storytelling and part science. Bob will discuss the science behind loneliness and the importance of connectedness to our overall health. And he will share his story of how the isolation of the past two years contributed to his own mental health challenges that included severe depression and suicide ideation.

|After losing my son, Jack Padilla, to suicide on February 14, 2019 I changed careers to address the epidemic of youth suicide. Jack was one of seven children to die by suicide in our south Denver community within 6 months. I decided to dedicate my life to finding out why the upsurge in youth suicides.

Storytelling is at the epicenter of culture change and stigma reduction. When we share our stories we learn, we inspire, and we connect. Most importantly, we tell others they are not alone. Listening to others’ stories helps us practice empathy. By being vulnerable we give others permission to do the same, and when we can truly put ourselves into another’s person’s shoes, we begin to construct healthier communities. Participants will learn about dominant and counter narratives and why storytelling is so effective at changing culture norms surrounding masculinity. They will watch excerpts from our Men Speak series which will feature stories from the full spectrum of masculinity from three different community events.
