Everyone has a story, and nobody is normal. Listen as mental health advocate and top 50 TEDx speaker Mark Henick explores the idea of normalcy through the art of storytelling. After years of telling his own story of suicide attempts, and eventually finding the stranger who saved his life, Mark sits down with other fascinating media figures and unsung heroes to unravel their encounters with struggle and resilience. The result is a deep dive into the inspiring lives of people who have persevered.
