Getting Comfortable with an Uncomfortable Conversation

Breaking the silence on mental illness and suicide

TEDx and motivational storyteller, Anne Moss Rogers, has built a following on the tabooist of subjects--suicide, and the mental illness and addiction that often trigger it. Despite her family's best efforts, her 20-year-old son, Charles Aubrey Rogers, died by suicide June 5, 2015 after many years of struggle with anxiety, depression and a heroin addiction.

Grief stricken and terrified, she published a newspaper article about her family's tragedy that went viral, creating a following for her blog, Emotionally Naked.

This presentation is about Anne Moss’ journey to healing by dragging an unpopular topic into the spotlight, how parents can discern normal teen behavior from mental illness, the transitions that can cause problems for teens, and strategies for helping children build resilience.

Takeaways:
• What are the signs of suicide and how does someone ask
• What is normal teenage angst and what is cause for concern
• What kids are vulnerable to suicidal thoughts
• What life transitions can trigger teens who are vulnerable
• Strategies for helping kids build resilience

What do I want the audience to do?
Have the tough conversations with their friends and family to erase mental health stigma
