Everyone has a story - good, bad, dark, painful - your story is important and it won’t be like anyone else's. Listen as mental health strategist, advocate, and speaker, Mark Henick, challenges the concept of normalcy through the art of storytelling. His TEDx talk, “Why We Choose Suicide”, shares his story of a man who saved his life from a teenage suicide attempt. After years of public speaking and telling his story, Mark sits down with other fascinating people to unravel their story with pain, mental health, and resilience.

In this week's episode, Mark gets into the gritty, unvarnished story of Tom Regehr, founder and executive director of CAST Canada. Tom holds nothing back: his traumatic childhood, his experiences with homelessness and addictions, his thoughts of suicide. But then, he tells Mark about his point of change, and shares his hard won insights for what might help others in a similar place.
