New York Jets Solomon Thomas, along with his parents Chris and Martha, created The Defensive Line to end the epidemic of youth suicide, especially for young people of color, by transforming the way we communicate and connect about mental health.


On January 23, 2018, Martha, Chris, and Solomon lost their daughter and sister Ella Elizabeth to suicide. Over the last four years, that story of profound loss and grief evolved into one of hope and love founded in the belief that together we can protect each other; that true strength lies in vulnerability and an open heart.


During this workshop, Chris and Martha will share their family’s journey of turning pain into purpose and discuss ways to be a bridge between people in need and the resources that exist to support their mental health and intervene in crisis. If there are any questions please contact Dr. Eric Wood
