Author and Dad To Host Signing for New Book About Losing Son to Depression

S For Story/10383355
HENDERSON, Nev. - s4story -- R. Avery Burton, author of the new book 'This is Depression', a personal story about how depression took the life of his son after college graduation, is doing his part to help those affected by this silent killer find their voice.

Burton will host a book signing on Saturday, July 20 at Barnes and Noble in Henderson, located at 567 North Stephanie Street. The event is from 10 a.m. to Noon and books will be available for purchase.

July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, so the date of the book signing was selected to help bring further awareness to the unique struggles that underrepresented groups face in regard to mental illness in the United States.

"My son Avery passed away on July 24th, so this month has special meaning. Depression doesn't discriminate. It can impact anyone or family regardless of your background," said Burton, a veteran Las Vegas-based public relations consultant who recently self-published his book in collaboration with his literary agency, Rushmore Press.

"By sharing my personal experiences, I hope to empower those impacted by depression find their voice and remove the stigma associated with this deadly disease."
