Fonda Bryant Speaking Topics

  • Culture Matters when it comes to Mental Health

    When it comes to mental health culture matters. How Black people and people of color view mental health is why stigma is so rampant.

  • Suicide is Everybody's Business

    Suicide isn't a warm and fuzzy subject but it an important one. We as a society have to have uncomfortable conversation to evoke change through ACTION.

  • EVERYBODY Needs an Aunt Spankie

    28-years ago, I called my Aunt Spankie and told her, "She could have my shoes." She called me back and asked me, "Are you going to kill yourself?" I said, "Yes," and went into ACTION like a Superhero and saved my life.

  • Suicide is Preventable through education and simply CARING

    In the time you watch a movie, you can learn how to save a life.

    A simple conversation with a reporter that couldn't do a story on the number of suicides in a Charlotte parking deck went from a conversation, to ACTION to a Bill that bears my name: House Bill 858: Fonda Bryant Suicide Prevention Signage Act
