Making Suicide Prevention a Health and Safety Priority

About the Speaker/Trainer Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas

Sally Spencer-Thomas is a clinical psychologist, inspirational international speaker and an impact entrepreneur. Dr. Spencer-Thomas was moved to work in suicide prevention after her younger brother, a Denver entrepreneur, died of suicide after a difficult battle with bipolar condition. Known nationally and internationally as an innovator in social change, Spencer-Thomas has helped start up multiple large-scale, gap filling efforts in mental health including the award-winning campaign Man Therapy and the nation’s first initiative for suicide prevention in the construction, Construction Working Minds.


She has been an international keynote speaker at the Australian MATES in Construction’s Annual Mental Health Conference, a preferred speaker and advisory member for CFMA’s Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention, and a regular trainer/keynote speaker for the SMART/SMACNA Member Assistance Program, among many other industry engagements. In 2016 she gratefully accepted IRMI’s Horizon Award on behalf of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s Workplace Task Force.


In 2016 she was an invited speaker at the White House where she presented on men’s mental health. In her recent TEDx Talk she shares her goal to elevate the conversation to make mental health promotion and suicide prevention a health and safety priority in our schools, workplaces and communities.
