AnneMoss’s Mental Health TEDx
Authentic and real, Anne Moss educates through stories, and her audiences offer her their full rapt attention– often not moving.
Best speaker on this subject that I have ever heard in 20 years in the “business.”

Mental Health Speaker & Suicide Loss Survivor
AnneMoss’s younger son, Charles, was the funniest, most popular kid in school. He was complicated, charming, eclectic and a creative genius. As a teen, he wore the mask of a clown to hide his depression and anxiety and used drugs and alcohol to numb his thoughts of suicide. Ultimately, he became addicted to heroin and took his own life in 2015 at age 20.
The most devastating loss of her life was a turning point. While it took time to accept that purpose with grace, she has never looked back or regretted that decision.
One of the most sought-after speakers on mental health, AnneMoss speaks most often at conferences, universities, schools, and workplaces.
