On today’s show we’re joined by Kevin Dedner, founder and CEO of Hurdle, award-winning public speaker and true leader in all he does.
As he discusses the evolution of his business, Kevin takes us back to his own experience with depression, and not only what this taught him, but the gaps in mental healthcare this period highlighted. Following this journey, he set about creating culturally intentional mental healthcare, and Hurdle was born.
As Kevin touches on the increase in company commitments to diversity and inclusion, especially during the last year or so following the death of George Floyd, he explains the importance of making these promises tangible. He tells us that while a diverse team will not be without its challenges, it will be a team that does not burn out easily and that provides beautiful outcomes.
Discussing mental health, diversity, outcomes and so much more, this episode brings important topics to the forefront, breaking down barriers and highlighting the importance of culture within therapy, among other key messages. Sharing statistics, facts and findings, Kevin provides us with takeaways and talking points that we all have a responsibility to listen to, and act on.
