Venessa Dean Abram, MBA, CPS, WHAMProfessional SkillsExecutive Director Email Venessa

Over the years, my experiences have not only afforded me numerous opportunities to network and meet like-minded people, but to diversify my skill set, better equipping me to relate to various individuals in need of empowerment, encouragement and a reassuring voice. As a Multi-Award Winning Author, Public Speaker, Radio and Television Personality, Junior Board Member for American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, United Survivors Advisory Board Member, Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) Region 3 Advisory Board Member, National Alliance on Mental Illness Certified Instructor, NAACP Member, Baltimore Mental Health Alliance Member, and a member of Duluth Business Association and National Council of Negro Women, all has cultivated a colorful network and experience base, all aiding me in my advocacy for mental health and suicide prevention.

June, 2018 marked the commencement of our National Self-Discovery: Pain, Positioning & Purpose Mental Health Conference Tour. In 2019, our Mental Health International Tour started in May in my hometown of Gary, Indiana. Garnering tremendous support, the tour offers educational material and resources to families and individuals faced with the negatives associated with mental illness, bullying, and suicide. The initiative proves to be a success and reflects not only its potential, but the urgent need for mental health events, and we endeavor to meet that need. Continuing to devote our time, energy, skills and resources, we will work assiduously to ensure our families, friends, colleagues, and loved ones are educated and empowered in the face of mental illness, bullying and suicide.
