Kevin Breel is a 23-year old writer, comedian and activist. As a writer, his debut memoir 'Boy Meets Depression' achieved critical acclaim. Forbes Magazine called it "a small book well worth reading" and NPR dubbed it "honest and compelling". As a comedian, Kevin has headlined theatres and colleges with his unique, story telling show. And as an activist for mental health, Kevin has been a guest speaker at Harvard University, Yale, and MIT. He has spoken at Fortune 500 Companies, for The Government of Canada and even at TED; where his viral talk has amassed over 4 million views. The talk entitled "Confessions of a Depressed Comic" is one of the most viewed TED talks in history- alongside the likes of Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates. Kevin has been a part of multi million dollar fundraising events, helped to advise political reform and is one of the National Ambassadors for the prestigious Bell LET'S TALK Campaign.
