Hi my name is Candace. I am here because my adult child took his/their life January 1, 2019. Roan was just about a month shy of his 22nd birthday. I am trying to find meaningful work in suicide prevention/mental health advocacy/harm reduction. I have a masters in Art Therapy and over 20 years of experience working with mental health/substance use through various positions: Recreation/Art Therapy Coordinator, Engagement Supervisor and Social Service Supervisor, Clinical in NYC Shelter System. I want an opportunity to work with youth and young adults around suicide/harm reduction to honor Roan’s life.
