Venessa Abram, an Atlanta author and certified speaker and instructor for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and a junior board member for AFSP, is all too familiar with the trauma, pain and stigma surrounding mental illness, depression and suicide.  Her older brother, a decorated military veteran committed suicide nearly two years ago and she herself had attempted to end her life in years past.  Now as a survivor, Abram has made it her mission to help families heal and educate others about the realities of mental illness, depression and suicide prevention, through an upcoming national speaking tour.

The Self Discovery: Pain, Positioning and Purpose Tour will be an educational, empowering and inspirational forum for individuals and families struggling with the causes and effects of mental illness, depression and suicide.
