Featuring inspiring stories of hope & resilience…


‘Reasons to Live: One More Day, Every Day’ follows the lives of 10 everyday and high-profile humans who have found a way to rise above the darkness of mental illness or suicide. 


With raw, honest, and powerful stories of surviving and thriving after childhood cancer, PTSD, permanent disabilities, eating disorders, the death of a child, and more, every story is a reminder that no matter how dark things get…there are always reasons to live, one more day, every day. 

“Your book is going to help so many people…


It will continue to augment destinies forever, and that’s a beautiful thing. You should be proud of that.”

Praise for ‘Reasons to Live’

“I’ve just finished this book and I’m lying here crying…


“This book is perfect in so many ways. To know that people out there know your pain and can live through it…I don’t think anything has shown me more clearly that I should keep on going.”


Reader (U.K)

“A remarkable book.


I was especially moved by your own story… the dominant message in this book is one of triumph over adversity, of hope and resilience,  and of the healing power of love and care for others.”



Professor of Youth Mental Health (University of Melbourne), Executive Director of Orygen, & Founding Director of Headspace

“A beautiful book that is truly needed in this difficult world.


Beautifully written with raw and honest stories. Thank you Jas for bringing mental health into a much needed medium.”
