ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent, Good Morning America

Learn with us as Dr. Jennifer Ashton, author of the recently released book, Life After Suicide: Finding Courage, Comfort & Community After Unthinkable Loss, shares her family’s journey following personal loss, as well as the stories of others across the country.

Leading the conversation of this intimate and powerful evening will be MHA Board Member and mental health advocate, Sean A. Mayer, who lost his brother Ryan to suicide in 2014.

Dr. Ashton’s book will be available for purchase at the event – guarantee your copy with a special pre-order purchase during online registration.

“By sharing her story – and those of other survivors – Dr. Ashton is helping to remove the guilt and shame so often associated with mental health challenges in general – and suicide in particular. This powerful book is a gift to all who are working to change the culture that those in need receive the care they deserve.”


Barbara Van Dahlen, Ph.D., President and Founder of Give an Hour and the Campaign to Change Direction

Join us on Thursday, September 26th at the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center for this powerful Community Conversation.
