Find hope, healing & purpose
…I saw you speak this morning at the NIMH suicide conference and it was one of the most beautiful, raw speeches I have ever witnessed. You were so vulnerable and open and articulate. Your story has inspired me to do everything I can as a doctor to screen for suicide/mental health concerns/and involve the whole family in my work. I thought your comment about connectedness, and the lack of it in our current age of social media and technological advances was brilliant….

Charles’s story, your story, must be told. What an incredible grief journey you have traveled, coming from where you were in 2015 to the impact you are making today in so many lives. The stigma of suicide needs to be told and you are the person to do that. Your story resonates with bereaved parents and offers them a way forward…

In Memory of Charles Aubrey Rogers, 1995-2015
This all started in memory of AnneMoss Rogers’ son Charles Aubrey Rogers, the funniest, most popular kid in school who suffered from addiction and depression and died by suicide at age 20.
Is AnneMoss going to depress my audience?
“AnneMoss educates through her powerful personal story of loss that serves as a wake-up call to the audience. Despite the heavy subject matter of the topic, I do not find her presentation dark and dismal but surprisingly inspiring and full of hope.”
— Ted Abernathy MD, Pediatric and Adolescent Health Partners

Many teens left your class ready to open up about the issues they were facing with the other adult teen/youth workers at the YMCA Leader’s Club Regional rally. Your class was a bridge that encouraged teens and some of the attending parents to have those difficult conversations about self-love, authenticity, depression, grief and teen suicide. One teen in particular, who identifies as transgender, expressed how your class helped him accept who he is becoming. He also shared he once thought about dying by suicide and was ashamed but after hearing that others were facing the same issues helped him realize he was not alone.
