Friday Night: It wasn’t until John Terrell was in college that the signs of his mental illness began to show. His cycling from manic to depressive states started the beginning of his sophomore year at VCU in 2004. As his life unraveled, creating art was his constant.

After his death by suicide December 2015, his father walked out to the studio we shared and observed the paintings he had carefully selected and hung on the walls of his studio as a final statement. Together they tell a story that needs to be shared. See the #griefheart in Paul’s honor.

Proceeds from this show will benefit the following nonprofits which are serving our community: NAMI Central VA, www.namicentralvirginia.org, Full Circle Grief Center, fullcirclec.org, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Virginia, afsp.org.

My motivational mental health keynotes, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, anxiety, coping strategies/resilience, and grief.
