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.
Mental Health Speakers Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.

Sorry. But strangely I received a card with $10 staples inside from my angry landlord who lives next door (duplex) who has been texting me “I can’t stand you and I don’t like you— MOVE!!”
We used to get along. But I think the “me to” movement has made him angry and caused us both awkwardness.
But still. Too strange
Yesterday was my birthday. My mom texted me a cold text. She’s out of state. Basically reinforced her position: don’t want to be unconvinced with my feelings which I don’t ever share at this point. How do I plead with a conservative religious trump supporter who is convinced I’m going straight to hell for being as bad as an adult as I was as a child with bad grades. Here we are still. And I’ve never accused her of having any part of my abuse. Even though she let him back in and he continued. I’m still having flashbacks and nightmares. I’m 58 (59 yesterday) and still just the problem kid
I know no one is reading this. I don’t know where this goes. But I am still shocked and hurt. It just happened yesterday. So that I don’t have to “whine” about it to anyone since my sister doesn’t care and that’s my ONLY family.
I am so sorry. Sometimes parents are not supportive due to just being tied to a doctrine or view. Abuse, mental health, substance misuse are all so stigmatized.
I am sorry. You should know that there are many people who read this Blog that will understand how you feel. This is a safe place to share your feelings. This Tribe, Anne Moss has collected, gets it. If you want to talk, we will listen. We may not have any answers but we welcome you to join us. We embrace you.
Thank you Teri.
