DESCRIPTION

I will be covering the topic of suicide prevention with a focus on our high schools. Health and PE teachers in Virginia have been tasked to teach mental health and suicide prevention. Yet they do not get the training to do so. I will be proposing some solutions.

Covering: safeTALK training, QPR presentation and Response for teachers to use for teaching.

My ask will be that the club support those efforts in Powhatan County Schools.

I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my youngest son, Charles to substance use disorder and suicide June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, 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. Professional Speaker Website.
