Mental Health & Suicide Awareness

(From a Comedian's Viewpoint)

We certainly realize suicide is a serious matter, but we have a guest that has chronic suicide ideology and yet, he is a stand up comedian!

 

He literally puts a new spin on mental health.  He was lucky enough to get off the ship he was working on (in his stand-up role) after being turned away by several countries due to the Corona Virus.  During the brief break he called in from Cambodia!  Yes, this is an episode you won't want to miss! 

 Frank King, Suicide Prevention speaker and   Trainer was a writer for The Tonight Show for 20 years.

  Depression and suicide run in his family.

  He’s thought about killing himself more

  times than he can count. He’s fought a lifetime battle with Major Depressive Disorder and Chronic Suicidality, turning that   long dark journey of the soul into five TEDx   Talks and sharing his lifesaving insights on   Mental Health Awareness with associations,   corporations, and colleges.

 A Motivational Public Speaker who uses his   life lessons to start the conversation giving people permission to give voice to their feelings and experiences surrounding depression and suicide.

 And doing it by coming out, as it were, and   standing in his truth, and doing it with humor.

 He believes that where there is humor there

 is hope, where there is laughter there is life,   nobody dies laughing. The right person, at the right time, with the right information, can save a life.
