Suicide Prevention, a conversation
About Wize Move Society
On May 1, 2021, Move in2 the Future launched the Wize Move Society: the online community, especially for the 50 plus generation. A community where we bring together people from all over the world and all different backgrounds. It is our intention to have fun, meet new friends, to re-invent ourselves, learn from each other and share our knowledge, experience, and wisdom. Most importantly to create solutions together for the new challenges that we are facing, to start new businesses, to think about our next career move or semi-retirement opportunities.
Anne Moss Rogers, the emotionally naked speaker, is a TEDx storyteller, award-winning author of Diary of a Broken Mind, NAMI Virginia board member, and owner of the popular Emotionally Naked blog. She speaks on the topics of grief, mental illness, and suicide prevention as well as coping strategies after her twenty-year-old son, Charles, died by suicide June 5, 2015. He suffered from depression and addiction. Her second book through Wiley Publishing is due out August 2021 called: Emotionally Naked: A Teacher’s Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk.
She has been interviewed by the New York Times, and was the first non-clinician invited to speak at the National Institute of Mental Health. A graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, she now lives in Richmond, VA with her husband, Randy. Her surviving son, Richard, works in LA as a filmmaker.
