A former writer for The Tonight Show and 7-time TEDx Talker, Frank King uses his life-long personal battles as his vehicle for ending stress, anxiety, and suicide on campus. His keynote is tailored to the factors faced by students: 63% in the USA said they faced overwhelming anxiety in 2018, with the pandemic spiking that further. The majority of students experience it, and this strongly correlates with suicidal thoughts, ideation, and actions—1100 college students die by suicide annually.
Frank’s keynote begins with signs and symptoms, followed by solutions, and wraps with postvention. He can speak to students at-large or breakout sessions customized for higher-risk campus communities. Build a lasting impact on-campus by certifying RAs, faculty, and staff with a Train the Trainer workshop.
