Clint is a former police officer and counselor. Now he is a published author with his new book, "lighting the blue flame" which is all about suicide prevention and resilience. He is the director of Blue Flame projects which is focused on resilience and leadership programs around suicide prevention and domestic violence. He's based out of Brisbane, Australia.
Clint joins me to share the journey that shaped him into creating a career path that involved serving the public and promoting mental health. He talks about his experience working in the police force, and as a counselor that helped him identify how PTSD can affect those trying to help the traumatized. He talks about how unresolved trauma can have a major effect on aspects of our lives like work and how effective leaders we can be. Clint also shares insight from his book and how he is trying to reduce the suicide rates of younger generations.
