Keynote Suicide Prevention Speakers

I was honored to be one of the opening keynote suicide prevention speakers at this youth summit with Christopher Thomas Veal, in February 2021. The focus was to get together stakeholders across the USA and create a blueprint for how healthcare systems can come together to prevent youth suicide.

Chris and I represented the voices of lived experience. How did I see things from the perspective of a parent who had a child who struggled and died by suicide? How did Chris see things from the perspective of someone who struggled?

The following presentations and small workgroups were very productive and I do hope we see the results of that blueprint. this year.
