DESCRIPTION

I will be presenting my personal story and what I’ve learned about mental illness and addiction to the parents at St. Gertrude’s.

Coming to this presentation does not mean you have a child that is addicted

It means you are aware this is the environment your child is growing up in and want more eduction on what that is is important so you can guide your child on a path to success.

I am co-presenting with Bill Maher, a nationally-known and well-respected substance use disorder interventionist who lives in Richmond, VA and works with families to help loved ones find resources for recovery and healthy living.

This is a parent education presentation and open to the community. St. Gertrude’s is being proactive on the subjects of mental illness and addiction.

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.
