This is a podcast with Christopher R. Jones from The Authentic Leader Show. When I decided to be a mental health speaker and suicide prevention speaker, it wasn’t easy. Those are topics no one wants to talk about. The world is thawing a bit on the subject of late given the rise in mental illness and suicides. I am sorry it took that to get people to listen. But at least they are.

I am an emotionally naked TEDx 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 substance use disorder 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, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, 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. Professional Speaker Website.
