1. Keynote Speaker – Brock Dumville: Suicide Prevention for LGBTQ Community
Speaker Biography: Brock is a long-time advocate for LGBTQ youth. He joined the Trevor Project in 2011 as Crisis Services Manager, bringing with him years of experience in both academic and community settings. While in college in Montreal, Brock managed a local LGBTQ-focused crisis, support, and information hotline for three years—an experience that ignited a passion for working with LGBT youth in crisis and showed him first-hand the life-saving impact of a crisis line. This early experience guided his career and education ever since. In June 2011, Brock obtained a Master of Public Health degree, acquiring a valuable roster of program planning and evaluation skills to complement his practical experience working for the health and wellbeing of marginalized populations. These experiences have allowed Brock to become an expert in harm reduction and support skills.
