NOTE FROM TED: Some viewers may find elements of this talk to be distressing or objectionable. This talk only represents the speaker's personal views and understanding of mental health. We've flagged this talk because it falls outside the content guidelines TED gives TEDx organizers. 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/t...

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Every year in North America 8,000,000 people contemplate this, 1,000,000 people attempt it, and 39,000 succeed. Succeed at what? Suicide. 39,000...that’s twice the rate of homicide…and practically nobody is talking about it…until now…

An award winning, syndicated humour columnist and radio talk show personality, Frank King’s comedy explores the dark side of the stand-up comic. Part talk, part comedy routine, his TEDxRenfrewCollingwood performance centres around the long-standing relationship between humour and mental health.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
