Frank King, “The Mental Health Comedian” – Episode 29
Rob and Paul host Frank King, “The Mental Health Comedian,” a suicide prevention and postvention public speaker and trainer, as well as writer for The Tonight Show for 20 years. Depression and suicide run in Frank’s family and he’s fought a lifelong battle with Major Depressive Disorder and Chronic Suicidality. Frank has turned that long dark journey of the soul into five TEDx Talks and shares his lifesaving insights on Mental Health Awareness with associations, corporations, and colleges.
Rob and Paul chat with Frank about the “stressors” that dentists encounter on a regular basis, as well as why depression and suicide are more prevalent with dentists. Frank talks about how to spot depression and suicidal tendencies and what to do if you or someone close to you has those feelings. This episode with Frank King is another installment of the Dentist Well-Being Series of podcasts that The Dental Amigos will host from time to time.
