The ARDX Foundation is excited to announce Darryl “DMC” McDaniels as their keynote speaker during the 11th Annual Women’s Wellness Celebration, held on Friday, October 26th, 2018 at the Chesapeake Conference Center.
McDaniels, who is most well known as a founding member of pioneering hip-hop trio Run-DMC, has been profoundly open about his personal journey with mental health issues, including addiction, depression, and recovery. In his riveting memoir, “Ten Ways Not to Commit Suicide,” McDaniels addresses the many reasons that led him—and thousands of others—to consider suicide. Some of the factors include not being true to who you are, feelings of loneliness, isolation, and alienation, and a lack of understanding and support from friends and family when it’s needed most.
