Keynote Speaker: Eric KussinFounder: We're All A Little “Crazy,” Nonprofit; The Global #SameHere Movement; Mental-Health Advocate/Keynote SpeakerWe’re All A Little “Crazy”, founded by 15-year professional sports executive, Eric Kussin, brings together Athletes, Celebrities, and Expert Practitioners. After a successful career that started at the NBA League Office, Eric’s mental health took a sudden and rapid decline.Due to unresolved life traumas he failed to address at a young age – experiences he was unaware were affecting his mental health – Eric developed a severe PTSD, along with anxiety and depression which left him almost permanently in bed, with severe cognitive impairment, for over two and a half years. Once he found a way to climb out of his abyss, he vowed to spend the rest of his life focused on changing the global conversation through mental health advocacy.Mental health exists on a continuum, with some experiencing more severe declines than others over varying periods of time. Eric is determined to spread his message: that EVERYONE in the world is affected by life’s inevitable traumas and losses. We can’t escape them, as they are part of the human experience and they impact us on many levels. Because of this, his view is that we should all be open and accepting of those who need help, because we’re one community in this “crazy” world, all fighting our own unique, but often similar, battles.
