In memory of my son Charles’ struggle with depression and addiction, and death by suicide, I invite you to come walk with me and my team at the Richmond Out of the Darkness Walk.
This is a walk to support those with lived experience, those who have survived a suicide loss and to remember those we lost. If you are a team member, I would like you to try to raise $200. That’s four $25 donations.
It means a lot to me to have a group of people and walk in honor of my son.
How can you help?

I am an emotionally naked mental health speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind and co-author with Kim O'Brien PhD, LICSW of Emotionally Naked: A Teacher's Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my younger son, Charles to addiction and suicide on June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational mental health keynotes, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, anxiety, coping strategies/resilience, and grief.
As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory.
