Mental Health Luncheon Featuring Terry Wise

Registration: 11:00am–11:30am
Luncheon and Program: 11:30am–1:30pm
Hyatt Regency La Jolla • 3777 La Jolla Village Drive • La Jolla, 92037


Drawing from personal experience, author Terry Wise brings her audience behind the closed doors of a therapy office in Waking Up: Climbing Through the Darkness. She reveals powerful insights about depression and suicide, and the entire process of recovery—for people on both sides of the couch. Waking Up is a highly-acclaimed book that provides a roadmap for the restoration of emotional health.

A former Boston trial attorney, Wise devoted her life to international public speaking and full-time writing after losing her spouse to Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) and surviving a suicide attempt. Wise serves on the boards of several national organizations and is the recipient of a National Mental Health Award for “distinguished achievement and work that has had a major impact on the depression community.”

“When Terry lectures on her experience overcoming depression and the temptation to suicide, she not only stirs the emotions of her audience. She invariably moves several people to come up to her afterward and tell her of their own experiences, and how heartened they were to learn of her victory over depression. I am convinced that she saves lives and pulls people out of the darkness that envelopes them.”
Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, Bestselling Author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

“Waking Up is the story of a brave woman who dared to love and found that love left her abandoned in the valley of the shadow of death. And it is the story of a courageous therapist who dared to care about that woman, to lend her strength until she grew strong enough to continue on her own, to believe in her despite everything, until she learned to believe in herself, who took her by the hand and led her out of the shadows and into the sunlight.”
Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, Bestselling Author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
