Roberta Roth and Menlo Park - Thank you for organizing an event on mental health. Congratulations to Turning Point on their inaugural event. My father committed suicide in 1978, just before my senior year in high school. People didn't talk about it back then. The only marketing piece, during that time that I recall about mental health, suicide was the movie A Reason to Live with Ricky Schroder in 1985. I hope the people that need to become more aware of this disease, show up tomorrow!
