“Stop Minding Your Own Business with Terry Bentley Hill
Thursday, April 30th – 902 W. Dengar Avenue
We invite you to attend our first Mental Health Awareness Series: Stop Minding Your Own Business with Terry Bentley Hill
5:30-6:00 pm Registration & Reception
6:00 pm Keynote Speaker, Terry Bentley Hill shares her compelling story
Terry Bentley Hill became passionate about removing the stigma of mental illness and substance abuse following the deaths of her husband and her 14-year-old daughter to suicide. Both daughter and husband suffered from depression, and the disease of alcoholism complicated her husband’s mental illness. Ms. Bentley Hill quickly realized a cloud of shame and misunderstanding accompanied diseases of the brain. It became her healing mission to help others suffering from the illnesses – along with their families – by educating and raising awareness, but most importantly, by offering hope.
Currently, Ms. Bentley Hill serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Suicide & Crisis Center of North Texas. She has told her story of grief and recovery to thousands of people at events throughout the State of Texas.
6:45 pm Q & A with Expert Panel, including:
- Terry Bentley Hill, Criminal Defense Attorney and Advocate for Suicide Awareness
- Kristi Edwards, Licensed Professional Counselor & CEO of Centers for Children and Families
- Rachel Austin – Weibusch, Marketing Communications Specialist at Region 18 and Founder of Cole’s Grace Project
