Mental health advocate, stigma fighter, professional speaker and founder of StigmaZero, Jason Finucan is also the instructor of the Create Your StigmaZero Workplace online training program.
As someone who has experienced both a major physical illness (heart defect leading to open heart surgery in 1988) and a major mental illness (bipolar disorder leading to hospitalization in 2005), Jason shares his personal experiences with impactful storytelling techniques. These moving stories can be found as part of our academy programs, through his inspirational keynotes, and in his book Jason: 1, Stigma: 0 – My battle with mental illness at home and in the workplace.
Jason aims to make this difficult topic accessible and consumable, so he blends his stories with rigorous research in order to mobilize knowledge and perspective. His goal is for everyone to understand this important topic so they are empowered to make a real change and ultimately join in the effort to realize his vision for a future without stigma.
This is a mental health movement – and Jason wants you to be a part of it.
