Mental Health Crisis in Men | Allan Kehler | TEDxDalhousieU



NOTE FROM TED: This talk contains a discussion of suicidal ideation and child sexual abuse. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf

Men do not cry, men carry no emotions, men suffer in silence. That’s how society has stigmatized the way men should express their emotions. Allan Kehler shares his journey from being an alcoholic gambler, to finding his true self by being recognized and cared for as any other human. He shares how mental health should not have a barrier of gender nor stigma and that everyone deserves the same care, attention and love. Allan is a mental health advocate, international keynote speaker, and best-selling author of four books.
His writing has been published in countless national magazines and he has been featured on several
television and radio programs. He has also instructed various mental health related courses at the
college level and spent years working as an addiction counselor and clinical case manager.

Having persevered through his own mental health issues and addiction, Allan speaks from a place of experience. His moving stories tug on heartstrings, inspire a new perspective, and allow people to connect with themselves and others at a deeper level. He uses humor and compassion to create a safe space where people feel seen, heard, and supported.

Allan has developed a genuine appreciation and passion for learning and working with Indigenous people and communities. This has played a key role in his own recovery and these cultural teachings can be found in his presentations. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
