Who is Tom?
Tom Roberts is a former broadcast journalist, actor and college professor. He is mentally ill, too. Having Bipolar Disorder gives him a unique perspective in his speeches about stigma. Tom is also a survivor of two siblings who committed suicide. They chose to die rather than face the shame they felt about seeking mental health care. Shame fed by family, friends and the media.
Not only can stigma kill, so can the medical community as made clear in this 60 Minutes report "Nowhere to Go: Mentally Ill Youth in Crisis."

Tom's Approach to public speaking is poise, purpose and, above all, PASSION!
"Passion leads to mastery and mastery forms the foundation of an extraordinary presentation. You cannot inspire others unless you are inspired yourself. You stand a much greater chance of persuading and inspiring your listeners if you express an enthusiastic, passionate, and meaningful connection to your topic."
Carmine Gallo, author of Talk Like TED: The 9-Public Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds.
