Topic: How My EAP Helped My Recovery
Registration Fee: $25
Deadline: February 1, 2023
Dennis Gillan will use his story to highlight the role HR had in his recovering from the loss of two brothers to suicide. His misery has now become his mission and he will use his time to go over risk factors and warning signs of someone in mental health distress. He will also highlight how an EAP got him on the path to recovery.
Dennis Gillan, Executive Director Half a Sorrow Foundation
Dennis Gillan is a national thought leader on the topic of suicide prevention and mental health advocacy. He travels internationally speaking, raising awareness and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health. Dennis has been deeply touched by suicide after the loss of both of his brothers to suicide, eleven years apart. After years of sitting on the sidelines, he jumped into helping those in need by working on the suicide prevention hotline when he lived in Chicago. After moving to South Carolina, Dennis got involved with several non-profits that take on mental health issues, and this allows him to lobby lawmakers and raise awareness by sharing his story. Dennis gave a TEDx talk about loneliness that has received over 25,000 views! Dennis also co-wrote a children's book about dealing with sadness and showing children how kindness can save a life. Dennis is the executive director of a non-profit called the Half a Sorrow Foundation. The name of the foundation comes from an old Swedish proverb that states a shared joy is a double joy, a shared sorrow is half a sorrow. The mission of the Half a Sorrow Foundation is to improve mental health by promoting real conversations.
