Sean is also trained to train staff in the Signs of Suicide Prevention Program. He has been trained in collaborative problem solving and has spent the last several years in the Human Service/Mental Health field. Sean saw a huge gap in the mental health industry. He noticed that it was more about the have and the have nots then anyone would like to admit. This lack of equality pushed Sean to create We R H.O.P.E. Inc. with a colleague while still the Program Manager at a residential treatment center for boys with severe trauma. He now focuses all of his energy on We R H.O.P.E. to create change in the public schools by bringing support at a much younger age and breaking the stigma of mental illness.
