Speaking, videos, contracts, grant deadlines, parents needing help, children needing help and more. Charles is making an impact even in death.
So much death on this Valentine’s day. Yet another school shooting, this time in Florida. Some of the kids had to step over multiple dead bodies to escape the school. So many parents and spouses grieving. It’s like going to school is a game of Russian Roulette.
I am calling on the NRA to volunteer measures to keep semi automatic weapons out of the hands of citizens. I don’t think we need to fight it out in the halls of government.

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.
