Frank is the sole founder of the PostSecret Project, a growing collection of over a million artful secrets, mailed anonymously to him on postcards. He has appeared on Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning and NPR talking about the best-selling PostSecret books, his emotional live presentations, and the deep truths and hidden experiences that people share with him every day.
Known as ‘the most trusted stranger in America’, Frank has an all new presentation that shares what he has learned from his unique insights into the true feelings and challenges people are struggling with during the pandemic. He examines how young people are already remaking the world to distance physically without distancing emotionally. and demonstrates tools we can use to help others, and ourselves, with the unique mental wellness challenges during this crisis. Frank’s live online program is about 30 minutes long with a 30 minute Q & A afterward.
Frank has delivered keynote addresses around the world at colleges and universities, mental health conferences, tech events, and was even invited to the White House to share what he has learned about our secret selves. At times hilarious and heartbreaking, the secrets reflect complex issues that many of us struggle with: intimacy, trust, meaning, humor, and desire. As an advocate for mental health initiatives & suicide prevention, the National Mental Health Association recognized him with a special award. Warren is a volunteer for and actively involved in the organization Hopeline/1-800-SUICIDE.
Frank’s program creates a supportive environment to address issues like mental wellness, loneliness, consent and imposter syndrome. The goal is to leave students with the confidence to ask for help before they are in crisis. Additionally, the program empowers students with a tool kit they can draw upon to better identify classmates who may be struggling and best practices for questioning, listening, and referring to campus resources.
