Lawrence Sprung, Mitlin Financial’s Founder and Lead Wealth Advisor, joins the show to discuss mental health and suicide prevention.

As a financial entrepreneur, Lawrence explains his journey into the field and the personal narratives he contended with along the way. In particular, he discusses how his brother died by suicide due to bipolar depression and how mental illness awareness has improved in recent decades.

With more people establishing avenues into mental health and suicide prevention arenas, Lawrence charges business leaders to follow suit. While influencers sparking hope is helpful, to facilitate marketplace engagement, leaders must foster accountability to recognize risks and situations. The more people are encouraged to speak up, the more they will accept the challenge and take action.
