Michael Hempseed is the author of the book Being A True Hero: Understanding and Preventing Suicide in Your Community. Although he speaks on “dark topics” the participants at his seminars say they walk away feeling inspired and hopeful and they even have a few laughs along the way. Many non-professionals come to his seminars and they say they learn a lot. But, professionals and experts in the field, such as medical doctors, psychologists and counsellors also say they learn a lot.
