Suicide Prevention and Mental Wellness with Dennis Gillan

One person with their arm around the other.

We here at Gain Your Edge get excited at the prospect of bringing you insightful podcasts to help you gain a competitive edge for your business and for yourself every month. This week, however, we’re coming to you from a different angle. Instead of providing you with the latest and greatest for your business life, we decided it was time to discuss the more personal side of things.

Suicide is an unfortunate reality that many friends and families have had to deal with. From Netflix shows to the heights of business power, it’s an issue that needs to be discussed.

Dennis Gillan is a national thought leader on the topic of suicide prevention. He travels the nation speaking and raising awareness for mental health. With a very personal history of suicide, Dennis guides us through coping with such loss, the power of sharing, the importance of coworkers and much more. We hope to help you gain an expanded understanding of this important topic through the lens of business with this special episode of Gain Your Edge.
