I had the privilege of presenting to and consulting with Web RTC Ventures, whose headquarters are in Charlottesville, Virginia. They have a HIPAA compliant video communication product that could help us connect patients with behavioral health professionals and facilitate collaboration between behavioral health professionals.
What a great group of people. A lot of passion and empathy in the group. Thank you to my friend Ginger for referring me.
I started by sharing my story with this group and in so doing, I forgot something important. I forgot to add a trigger warning for vulnerable individuals. For some reason I didn’t think it was needed in a business environment. Why not? Of course it is. I won’t make that error again.

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.
