• About Brad Siroski

    When given the opportunity to share his story in high schools, Brad jumped at the chance and quickly realized just how influential your story can be. This began his journey into speaking, educating, and breaking stigmas around mental health and substance use. After overcoming his own battles, Brad quickly realized that his most powerful tool was his voice.


    A recurring theme in Brad’s speaking is perseverance. He overcame many hurdles in his addictions and was once again tested when he received a cancer diagnosis in 2015. Brad faced this head on and is currently living cancer free. This experience gives Brad a unique perspective on how people are treated when struggling with addictions in comparison to struggling with cancer.


    Brad is an engaging speaker and quickly captures the attention of his audience. He has a no-nonsense, straight-forward approach, which combined with his sense of humour, is refreshing. Brad is easy to relate to, as he is more than willing to share his personal stories. These things, mixed with his unorthodox use of poetry while speaking, make his presentations informative and unforgettable. His content ranges from lived experience to education on a wide range of mental health and wellness topics.


    Brad received a Mental Health and Addictions diploma through the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technology. He has learned a lot about the Indigenous culture and holds these teachings in high regard. He has also incorporated a holistic approach of healing into his professional and personal life. Brad has been working as an Outreach Addictions Counselor since May 2019. He is trained in Motivational Interviewing and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.


    He has opened a private practice and has a few spots available for new clients. He continues to work with communities to provide mental health and addiction support through his educational groups and public speaking events based around Mental Wellness and Holistic Healing.


    Brad was an integral part of the development of two mental wellness programs. He received the Safety Centered Leadership Award in 2022 for his contributions to the design of the Service Hospitality mental wellness modules. In March of 2023, he was honored by the province for his contributions to the Mental Health and Addictions field with the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee award.


    Through sharing his story, Brad is helping others and feels that he has finally found his calling and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

    "Brad comes across to his audience as real, vulnerable, and honest. Drawing from both lived and professional experiences he covers topics including addictions, recovery, healing and wellness. His messages are peppered with profound wisdom, and his powerful story reminds people that there is always hope. It is Brad's ability to incorporate his own poetry that separates him from other speakers on these topics. He continues to be an inspiration not only to me, but countless others."

    "Brad has spoken for our schools at a mental health and addiction event for the past 3 years. Brad is a very genuine and dynamic speaker. He is very open and real with the students, but is very aware of speaking at an age appropriate level. Brad includes his poetry in his speaking, which gives the students another way of learning about who Brad is and what his experiences have been. As Brad walks you through his journey, he keeps you on the edge of your seat, experiencing many different emotions as you empathize with him, and leaves you shaking your head wondering how could someone have such strong skills of resilience. He is funny, energetic, dramatic and young at heart. I would recommend Brad to speak for any age group. He is a joy to have around."
