Frank King Encore — From Comedy Writer to Suicide Prevention Speaker and Trainer
Special Encore Episode for Suicide Prevention Week:
Frank King was a writer for The Tonight Show for 20 years. But these days he’s helping prevent suicide.
Depression and suicide run in Frank’s family. He was just a young boy when his grandmother committed suicide, an image that’s seared into his mind. 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.
