Frank King is a suicide prevention speaker and trainer, former writer for The Tonight Show for 20 years, and a five-time TEDx Talker.

Depression and suicide run in his family. 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.

He is a motivational public speaker who uses his life lessons and humor to start an important conversation, giving people permission to give voice to their feelings and experiences surrounding depression and suicide. Frank believes that where there is humor there is hope and where there is laughter there is life. Nobody dies laughing. The right person, at the right time, with the right information, can save a life.

Through Frank’s keynotes, you will:

  • Recognize the prevalence of death by suicide and the importance of prevention practices within the workplace
  • Learn the epidemiology, etiology and risk factors of suicidal behavior
  • Discover strategies for screening, assessing, and reducing the risk of suicide
  • Understand special concerns, risk factors and interventions related to military veterans
  • Identify self-injurious behaviors and what objects, substances, and actions are common in suicide attempts
  • Learn the management and treatment modalities for patients at risk for suicide, including best practices for connecting the patient to referral
  • Gain the knowledge and skills to conduct suicide Postvention
  • Comprehend the relationship between workplace stress and suicide and learn valuable techniques to stress-less at work


Frank King speaks with humility and humor, connecting head and heart around one of the most important topics of our time: suicide prevention. A true leader of thought, Frank speaks from personal experience and deep understanding. I encourage my dental event planning colleagues to bring Frank King to inspire and educate your attendees. This topic is rapidly moving from recommended to required CE for healthcare licensure. You have the opportunity to work with one of the BEST educators on this topic in dentistry with Frank King.

It was really a great pleasure to have you speak at our Cardiovascular Symposium. We can all get a bit serious and tunnel-visioned in terms of our professions and you gave us a very nice perspective from the view of the patient. Your performance really lightened the atmosphere of the conference; there were several cardiologist at my table that were bent over double laughing!
