Jess has always had suicidal thoughts... but now she has her dog Shadow, she knows she would never act on them. Watch her Video Nation film...
Even as a little girl, Jessica was anxious and depressed and used to self-harm. She's now been diagnosed as having a form of autism.
Shadow is a rescue dog, but although Jessica has rescued him she feels he's also come to her aid and the two of them couldn't do without each other.
