I will speak 5-10 minutes at the Newport News Out of the Darkness Walk on creating a culture of connection to prevent suicide. It will be my story with message of hope.

I will also have a table and give away an advance copy of my book, Diary of a Broken Mind. Participants will sign up to win the book on the day of the event. I hope to see you there.

Anyone want to have an Emotionally Naked walk team in Newport News?

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.
