Mark Henick: Improving Our Approach to Mental Illness

Mental Health Strategist Mark Henick recently stopped by our office to give us a better understanding of the stigma surrounding mental health, along with his hope for creating a stronger support system for the vulnerable.

Mark’s unique perspective comes from being on all sides of the issue having been a patient, a professional, a policy influencer, and a public figure in the mental health system. In the video below, he shares his thoughts on how companies can improve their approach to mental health.

With more than five million views, Mark Henick’s TEDx talk, “Why We Choose Suicide,” is among the most watched in the world. His talks are informed by his direct experience with stigma and the mental health care system, and he brings his diverse and unique perspective to every audience.
