TransformingStigma.com/contact Mike Veny is America’s leading motivational and inspirational mental health speaker. He’s become a conference celebrity with a schedule that is BOOKED SOLID! He delivers entertaining, engaging, and educational experiences to conferences and events throughout the world.
After suffering from a devastating mental health breakdown in August of 2011, Mike made the decision to use his speaking skills to serve others. As a person who painfully struggles with mental health challenges every day, he is committed to transforming the stigma surrounding mental health into strength. In this video, Mike presented at the St. Luke's University Healthcare Network's Laros Auditorium in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Today Mike is fiercely committed to the idea transforming the stigma into strength starts with people taking an honest look at themselves. His essential message is “Stigma starts with shame. Shame leads to silence. Silence leads to self-destructive behavior, sabotage, and at it’s worst, suicide.”
He's a big believer is self advocacy, particularly in the area of mental health. As a mental health speaker for schools and at children's events, he hopes to have a positive impact on suicide prevention for youth at risk. Mike has a great respect for psychology, psychiatry, and social work.
Mike Veny lives in New York City and speaks about workplace, corporate, elementary school, middle school, high school, college, campus, youth, and children's mental health throughout the world. He is a proud member of the National Speakers Association (NSA), Global Speakers Federation (GSF), Meeting Professionals International (MPI), and Toastmasters International.
Mike’s favorite location to deliver his presentation is Canada, mainly because he believes that Canada (like Australia) is a leader transforming the stigma surrounding mental illness. Although he’s presented in Ontario, he is in the process of having conversations with organizations in Ottawa and Vancouver. Other areas that Mike is in the process of having conversations with include the UK, Ireland, and Minnesota.
