TEDx and emotionally naked® speaker, Anne Moss Rogers, lost her 20-year-old son, Charles Aubrey Rogers, to suicide on June 5, 2015. He struggled with anxiety, depression, and ultimately a heroin addiction.

A loss by suicide is like no other and survivors are especially vulnerable in grief because they often feel they are to blame for not having seen the often subtle signs. Friends and family members feel helpless and don’t know how to respond or what to do. This will be a frank conversation on how you can support the unique needs of those who’ve lost someone to suicide.

In conversation with pioneering death educator Gail Rubin, CT, we will discuss:

  • What is suicide and why do people kill themselves?
  • What to say or do that will support a friend/family member.
  • What is the “wrong” thing to say to a friend/family member who has lost someone to suicide?
  • How to sit with someone in their pain.
  • How to spot a suicide loss survivor who may be at risk of suicide themselves.

Join us, won’t you?

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