Turn your pain into purpose.
It’s a philosophy that speaker and social entrepreneur Lorenzo Lewis lives by. With a decade of professional experience in behavioral health and founder of The Confess Project, an initiative that confronts the stigma around mental health for men of color, Lorenzo helps you confess to your issues to begin to build a better process of living.
Born in jail to an incarcerated mother, Lorenzo struggled with depression, anxiety, and anger throughout his youth. At 17, he almost re-entered the system of mass incarceration he had come from. It was then he snapped in and began his journey to wellness.
It started with an education at Arkansas Baptist College and continued with him facing his own emotional challenges, eventually becoming a mental health advocate. Since then, Lorenzo has spoken at numerous venues across the country—from barbershops to universities—exploring themes such as toxic masculinity, therapy taboos, and more.
In a high-energy, participatory format, Lorenzo shares his story of vulnerability and resiliency to model what’s possible. There will be a reflection. There will be laughter. Maybe even some crying. (And that’s okay.) Most importantly, you will walk away with the resources you need to get started on the path of transforming your life, whether at home or work.
Dare yourself to move forward. Lorenzo will be there to guide you.
A trained facilitator, speaker, and licensed suicide prevention trainer, Lorenzo is available for speaking engagements at high schools, colleges and universities, community spaces, and corporate workplaces—anywhere his message will resonate. Most recently, Lorenzo trained employees on trauma-informed care at Snapchat headquarters and was tapped by Google to equip incoming college STEM students from marginalized communities with the mental health tools they need to thrive.
Lorenzo is a 2020 Roddenberry Foundation Fellow and 2020 Echoing Green Fellowship finalist. Additionally, he is the recipient of the 2019 National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Multicultural Outreach Award and Richard E. Tompkins Torch Award from the Central Texas African American Family Support Conference. Lorenzo has appeared in O Magazine as one of eleven 2020 Health Heroes, been recognized on Jay Z’s Roc Nation during Black History Month, was inducted into the Power Players Club on Nick Cannon Mornings - Power 106 FM, and more. Currently, he is an adjunct professor at Arkansas Baptist College.
