Diversity, Inclusion, Compassion & Making a Difference

We have carried our message to organizations large and small, making presentations to educators, mental health activists, suicide-prevention advocates, police and government conferences, service clubs and general civic/social gatherings.

It's one more way we all can work together to show our support for those who are struggling. Please contact us if you would like us to speak with your group! 


Mary spoke at an event for me last week and was so incredible! She shares her families’ story in such a way that is both poised, but also so real and raw. You can’t help but feel the emotions right along with her, and just want to hug her in the end. She truly knows how to speak to her audience in a way that connects with each individual. I highly recommend her, and look forward to having her return every chance I get!

Mary and Larry spoke to our Metro West Learning Center staff and families in April. What a dynamic story! Hearing about their journey and the work they are doing to help move the mental health story forward is invaluable. Thank you to both of them for the tireless work they are doing in memory of their son Sergei. I would highly recommend them as speakers!
