Chris O'Shea | Co-Founder, COO
Upon entering the mental health field, Christopher spent his first two years traveling the country visiting various programs at his own expense. He wanted to learn first-hand what treatment modalities were available to individuals impacted by substance use and mental health disorders.
During the past few years, Christopher has been supporting and working with substance use disorder and mental health research. He tirelessly worked to create The Clay Hunt SAV (suicide prevention) Act singed in to law by President Obama on February 12, 2015.
Christopher is a person in long-term recovery since November 19, 1998, and tirelessly carries the message of hope. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Vermont and received his Master of Social Work at Louisiana State University.
Christopher is the founder of Family Recovery Advocates and in 2016 co-founded Trusted Provider Network.
