Sam Webb Cofounder of LIVIN on Why #ItAintWeaktoSpeak

He may hail from Sydney, Australia, but Sam Webb has traveled the globe to further a cause that he’s keenly passionate about: mental health and suicide prevention. Sam has fought his own mental health challenges, as almost anyone can relate, but it’s the act of a dear friend, Dwayne Lally, taking his own life three years ago that spurred Sam to action.

To fight back against the all-too-common (and pervasive) stigma of mental health, in 2013 Sam cofounded the charity LIVIN (www.livin.org.au), an organization that promotes the mantra “it ain’t weak to speak.” Whether it’s through international presentations to schools or sporting organizations or via LIVIN’s innovative fashion line, Sam’s efforts focus on making mental health an approachable, even cool, subject to broach for all—those who are experiencing a mental health challenge firsthand as well as those who are concerned for friends or family. Mental health isn’t a silo meant to shut anyone away from the world, and Sam is traveling the globe to spread the message that it ain’t weak to speak—to speak up about your own struggles and to speak out against mental health’s stigma.

Livin with the After Effects of Suicide: An Interview with Sam Webb

livinlogoWe had the distinct pleasure of hearing about Sam Webb and his business partner and friend Casey Lyons from The National Council for Behavioral Health. They were one of the big hits at the 2016 annual national council conference sharing their inspiring journey around the creation of their non-profit LIVIN, a suicide prevention and mental health awareness organization. Sam joins us on Mental Health News Radio to discuss the inspiration for LIVIN and their global initiative.
