Suicide is gripping our friends and family every 22 minutes. Help SDP3 continue to spread Mental Health awareness, Suicide and Bullying Prevention throughout our nation. It’s critical to get the truth in wisdom and apply your knowledge every day and in every way. Suicide leaves collateral damage.
Venessa Anderson-Abram, an award-winning author, speaker and trainer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Junior Board Member of American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and member of United Suicide Survivors International, launched the Self Discovery: Pain, Positioning and Purpose Conference tour in 2018. The tour went to eight cities and shared critical information with audiences about the connection of mental illness to suicide and what signs to look for in family and friends who may be contemplating suicide. In fact, the 2018 tour was created in response to her older brother, a U.S. Army veteran, who took his own life in 2017.
The “Take Off the Mask” International Conference will feature speakers, authors and experts in mental health, suicide and invisible disabilities, including Abram.
