Robert chats with two local mental health and advocacy experts - Nancy Brooks and Donna Pollard - to explore combating isolation, fear, anxiety in quarantine, intergenerational trauma, and cultural obstacles to mental health resources and healing. Content warning: discussion of suicide and suicidal ideation, child abuse, addiction, police brutality, domestic violence, and sexual assault.

She most recently traveled to Finland as the keynote speaker for the Zonta International Centennial Conference, shedding light on the devastating implications of child marriage and critically needed global reform.

She is a frequent panelist, speaker, and trainer, and has given numerous keynote speeches as well as testimony before legislative committees.
