Our listeners know that comedy and mental health go together like peas and carrots. Everyone on our podcast network is allowed to laugh about mental health and mental illness. Why? Because we're in it - day in and day out right along with you.
Join Frank King AKA The Mental Health Comedian as we talk about his journey through mental illness and how he utilizes his experience to bring awareness to a subject that still can make people shift uncomfortably in their seats.
Frank King, Suicide Prevention and Postvention Public Speaker and Trainer was a writer for The Tonight Show for 20 years. Depression and suicide run 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.
