Mental Illness

Mental Illness is a topic that people shy away from. David talks about this topic for those who aren't comfortable talking about it. The "Lion" in Lion Speaking Agency is about making your voice heard and roaring your message until everyone hears it. That is the attention David wants to bring to mental illness.

Suicide Prevention

20 - 22 veterans a day die from suicide according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. David has battled suicide and now dedicates his life to suicide prevention in the veteran community.

Mental Health First Aid

David cares about other veterans who suffer from mental illness. He is certified in Mental Health First Aid which gives him the tools necessary to assist someone experiencing a mental health emergency.

Opioid Addiction

After being shot in both legs in an ambush, David spent three months in the hospital. While in the hospital David was connected to a continuous morphine drip to help mitigate the pain of his injuries. This was the beginning of a long, arduous battle with opioids that David eventually won.
