Event Type

There are two class sections of Mental, Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (SLWK 703) for the College of Social Work this Fall at VCU.

I will be speaking to this class, highlighting the mental health journey from a parent’s point of view.

Reveiw from last time:

“We received such amazing feedback from your presentation and the students gained such important knowledge and information that may help them when they are in the field and on the front lines working with individuals suffering from depression and addiction. Your story and experience provides a perspective that cannot be taught in a textbook that is invaluable to new clinicians entering the Social Work field.”

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.
