Mark Henick is the CEO of Strategic Mental Health Solutions. His path there wasn’t an easy one, and it’s a path that involves a very real second shot at life. Henick’s TED Talk, Why We Choose Suicide, is one of the most-watched talks with over 6 million views and details his own attempt at suicide.

While talking about suicide publicly is often discouraged from fears of contagion and copycat attempts, in this Second Shot sit-down Henick says that talking openly about suicide is one of the most effective ways to prevent it.
