Messages for Shel's retirement remembrance book

As you know, MHA of Wisconsin is hosting a retirement party for Shel Gross on November 28th.

Because Shel has worked with people throughout the state, we understand that it won’t be practical for everyone to attend in person since the event is being held in Madison. So, we are putting together a retirement remembrance book of messages and photos from the many people he has worked with over the years. To do that we need your help!

We are gathering messages and photos from those who are attending the event and those who are unable to attend in person.


  • Send a message, a memory, a story, or any other well wishes you would like to pass along to Shel. You could do this as an individual or as a team (ex: Zero Suicide, Health Departments, Suicide Prevention Coalitions, etc.)
  • Send messages by email to by October 31st.


  • Send a photo of yourself or your team to accompany your message.
  • Send any photos you have from events you’ve held that involves work you’ve done with Shel (ex: Suicide Prevention Walks, Zero Suicide training, etc.)
  • Send as JPG files by October 31st. Since this will be in a print book, please send the best resolution or largest file you have.

We will need to have these by October 31st in order to compile and format the book and send it to a printer.

If you have any questions, please contact or call 414.276.3122. We look forward to hearing from you!
