Speaking Engagements


i understand Founder, Vonnie Woodrick (pictured on the left), openly shares her story of finding peace and understanding after losing her husband to depression in 2003. Vonnie routinely provides speaking engagements to private organizations and community groups throughout the year in an effort to raise awareness about suicide and encourage education about mental health.

The "Love Heals" Lecture Series signature event is an evening with a celebrity mental health advocate and speaker to raise awareness and funds for i understand's mission and work in the community. Dates and details for our 2017 signature event and fall fundraising gala will be announced in the near future.
    Contact us if your organization or group would like to invite i understand to give a presentation to your members or employees. An honorarium is requested for speaking engagements. For booking, please email: emily@iunderstandloveheals.com
