The Shepherd's Voice
Archbishop Joseph Naumann teaches the Catholic Faith by interviewing Catholics who live it.

Archbishop Naumann talks with Bob and Kelly Specht about the loss of their son Carl to suicide, and how we can compassionately respond with better mental health awareness to prevent such tragedies.

Bob and Kelly Specht are the founders of Carl's Cause.

‘Carl’s Cause’ is a 501 (c)(3) which promotes mental health awareness.  It was created following the devastating loss of an amazing young man, Carl Specht at age 27. Their goal is to bring mental health awareness to the ‘stadium level’, where it’s ok to talk openly about mental health among families, friends, co-workers and children of all ages.
