Pam Butler welcomes Alex Beene, life coach, inspirational speaker and author of two best selling children’s books for a conversation about death and depression. Two years ago, Alex’s life was radically changed when he received a phone call saying his mother had suddenly passed away. Losing a parent and a best friend at an early age sunk him into a depression he thought would be impossible to climb out of. Alex will share his story and tools that helped him during his darkest days. Using art and writing to find artistic beauty in loss.
