Director of Outreach & Experience, TWLOHA
Chad Moses has worked for To Write Love on Her Arms since 2008, primarily collaborating with musicians, festivals, and entertainment companies to cultivate conversations about mental health. Over the years, he has traveled thousands of miles to represent TWLOHA at hundreds of events. Chad has been invited to speak at music venues, high schools, and on college campuses throughout North America and Australia. As a resident advisor at the University of Virginia, Chad was equipped with ways to care for peers struggling with isolation and mental illness, but he never imagined that he would wind up needing the help he was trained to offer. Chad’s personal story involves depression, self-injury, and substance abuse, but it also involves healing and hope. It’s a story that serves as a launching point for confronting the college-specific stigma surrounding mental health, identity, and community.
