My name is Dennis Gillan, and I lost two brothers to suicide. One suicide is too many, so imagine walking behind the caskets of two brothers eleven years apart. This rocked my world and after years of therapy, sobriety, and doing nothing about the suicide problem plaquing our society, I started to speak about it and the response has been amazing.
People want to talk about mental health and suicide prevention, they just don’t know how, and that’s where my keynote comes in. During my talk, I review the two toughest days of my life, but then we quickly move on to practical ways for the audience to spot someone in mental distress.
