David Granirer, RPC, MPCC, MSM

David Granirer, RPC, MPCC, MSM, is a counselor, stand-up comic, and mental health keynote speaker. David, who himself has depression, taught stand-up comedy to recovering addicts and cancer patients and founded Stand Up for Mental Health, his program that teaches comedy to people with mental health issues, in 2004. Since then he has trained Stand Up for Mental Health groups in partnership with various mental health organizations in more than 35 cities in Canada, the U.S., and Australia. David and his comics have performed more than 500 shows for various organizations. “What I see is a greater acceptance of ‘out of-the-box’ ideas in both promoting recovery and fighting stigma and discrimination,” says Granirer. “People seem to be ready to use humor to shine a light on some pretty dark and serious issues. I really believe that what they say is true: Laughter is the best medicine.”
