My topic- Mental Health and Addiction: Highlighting Injustices to our Youth

As a community advocate and a mother who tried to get help for her son, Charles, and ultimately lost him to suicide, Anne Moss illustrates the many gaps in a complex and broken system of care. She is fighting to give a voice to those suffering from mental illness and addiction–a vulnerable and underserved population. The injustices of which are widespread, cruel and unrelenting.

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.
