We are we thrilled to announce Major General (RET) Mark Graham and Carol Graham as this years Keynote speakers!
MG Mark Graham (RET) and his wife, Carol, are tireless champions of military and civilian efforts to promote mental health and suicide-prevention awareness and to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health care. To honor the memory of their sons, 2LT Jeff Graham, who was killed by an (IED) in Iraq in February 2004, and their son Kevin, a Senior Army ROTC Cadet, who died by suicide in June 2003, while studying to be an Army Doctor, at the University of Kentucky. The Grahams established the Jeffrey and Kevin Graham Memorial Fund to provide the “Question, Persuade, Refer” Suicide Prevention Program at the University of of Kentucky. The Grahams established the Jeffrey and Kevin Graham Memorial Endowed Lectureship in Psychology for the study of depression and suicide prevention at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma. Additionally, they support the ongoing efforts of the Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership, Colorado Springs, Colorado (El Paso County), through the “Jeffrey and Kevin Graham Support Services”. The Graham’s Story is featured in the award winning book, “The Invisible Front: Loss and Love in an Era of Endless War”, by Yochi Dreazen. General Graham currently serves as the Senior Director of the Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care National Call Center and the Director of VETS4WARRIORS.
