Dear NC State College of Engineering Parent(s)/Guardian(s),


The University has experienced unprecedented loss of our Wolfpack family members to suicide this academic year. The University and the College of Engineering are working hard to ensure our students have the resources to navigate these challenging times. With this in mind, we wanted to let you know that we have invited Anne Moss Rogers, a national expert and suicide prevention trainer, to join us on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Talley Student Center Mountain Ballroom. This event is an in-person event for our College of Engineering students. We request your support to encourage your student to participate in this workshop. Students have received the workshop details in their email today.


We arranged for parents/guardians to join us virtually for this workshop. Parent/guardian attendance does not require registration. Please click the link below prior to the event start time (7:00 p.m.)

Intro to the Speaker: Anne Moss is an emotionally naked® mental health speaker, TEDx storyteller, certified suicide prevention trainer, NAMI Virginia Vice President, and the award-winning author of Diary of a Broken Mind. After her 20-year-old son, Charles, died by suicide on June 5, 2015, Anne Moss chronicled her family’s tragedy in a newspaper article that went viral, and her blog, Emotionally Naked, has reached millions. She has been featured in the New York Times and was the first non-clinician invited to speak at the National Institute of Mental Health on youth suicide. Her second book, Emotionally Naked: A Teacher’s Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk, through Wiley Publishing, was co-written with Dr. Kim O’Brien.


We hope you can join us for this important workshop
