Mental Health Advocacy
Mark Henick stood precariously on the wrong side of the railing on a crumbling, concrete overpass. The bridge spanned two realities and, for Henick, had become a symbol of escape — in one form or another. A voice behind him tried to help. A crowd gathered. Siren lights flashed in his peripheral vision. Surrounded but still alone, Henick let go. His TEDx talk about being saved from death by a stranger is one of the most-watched in the world and has been viewed millions of times. Henick has served on the board of directors for the Mental Health Commission of Canada and was the president of a provincial division of the Canadian Mental Health Association — the youngest person in either role. He’s been featured in Entertainment Tonight, CNN, HuffPost, the Chicago Tribune and more.
