Trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid

Because I give so many presentations on the topic of mental illness, addiction and suicide, I have engaged in many training sessions to become more educated on evidence-based practices.

So now I’ve added Youth Mental Health First Aid. Thank you Kathy Harkey at NAMI Central Virginia who provides training on a number of mental health and suicide prevention trainings in Central Virginia. Most of you can also take these trainings and there are also certified peer support trainings for both mental illness and Substance Use Disorder. The latter would be for those with lived experience.

Here are my current certifications

I am an emotionally naked TEDx speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my youngest son, Charles to substance use disorder and suicide June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, 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. Professional Speaker Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.
