2016 Mental Health America Conference

Chris attended 2016 MHA Conference held at the Hilton Mark Center on June 9, 2016 in Alexandria, Virginia. He talked about the loss of his father to mental illness and his family’s struggle to get him help:

“Four years ago, I lost my father to untreated mental illness,” said Chris Wood. “My family struggled to get him help, and it took his heart failing to begin treating his issues. By being an Ambassador for MHA, I hope to help those struggling with mental illness find answers and the help they need before it’s too late. My goal is to spread awareness and begin removing any taboos, and improve the policies in place to better benefit a healthy mind.”
