Adam’s eloquent, heart-first approach makes his story instantly relatable.

His bravery in candidly talking about mental health opens the door for deep and safe conversations at work. He brings a level of authenticity and safety to the topic that lifts the stigma so people can open up and begin to heal."


More than 20% of Americans experience a diagnosable mental illness every year...

but they rarely get the help that will allow them to live and perform at their best.


Because of the myths that perpetuate the Isolation Cycle of mental illness.

Break the
Isolation Cycle

Our keynotes dispel the myths surrounding mental illness...

and inspire a culture of mental wellbeing and psychological safety.

Isolation Cycle Pink-min

The myths we've taught ourselves about mental illness generate stigma.

"Depression isn't a real illness, it's a choice"

The insidious stigma attached to the disease and those who experience it causes shame.

"People with depression are just weak."

Feelings of shame for those who struggle with mental illness. So, we silence.

"What's wrong with me? Why am I weak?"

So we stay silent, and the cycle perpetuates itself.

"I can't tell anyone."
