Once Suicidal Evangelist, Jay Lowder, Available to Speak to Robin Williams’ Death


Evangelist Jay Lowder understands what it is like to be both an individual considering suicide and a parent trying to cope with a child with depression. He is available to speak to the death of actor and comedian Robin Williams, who suffered from depression and is believed to have committed suicide.

In his 20s, Lowder’s struggle with suicidal tendencies led him to put a gun to his head, finger hooked into the trigger. Had not his roommate unexpectedly walked through the door, he would not be alive today. Today, he speaks in schools, recovery programs, juvenal detention facilities and churches around the world offering hope to those dealing with suicidal thoughts.

Additionally, his daughter recently emerged from a season of clinical depression, during which he and his wife sought to offer her spiritual and professional guidance.
