    Debbie de la Riva has been an active member of the bleeding disorders community since her son was born with severe hemophilia on 1994. Over the years, she has served in various roles including the Executive Director of the Lone Star Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF), as a committee member of NHF’s National Prevention Program, Steps for Living and Annual Meeting. Currently Debbie is partnering with Believe Limited’s film Let’s Talk: Mental Health and is contracting with the Hemophilia Federation of America to provide Mental Health First Aid classes and facilitate a three-part series on a cognitive behavioral approach to reduce anxiety and worry.

    In 2018, Debbie founded Mental Health Matters Too (MHMT) which is an organization dedicated to raising awareness and knowledge of mental health issues within the bleeding disorders community, normalizing the conversation about it and helping community members find resources for mental health information, care and support. She currently lives in Houston, Texas and works as a licensed professional counselor and certified Mental Health First Aid instructor.
