Guiding you

and others to embrace the power of self-care.

Using the knowledge of our ancestors to enjoy our present day life.

Frank Iovine is a passionate speaker who uses his decades of experience in community leadership and counseling to help enlighten families and co-workers about the importance of self-care and mindfulness. He follows the philosophy that life is meant to be lived, not just simply watched.


Frank started educating and inspiring others about the significance of mental health awareness during his twenty-year career in the New York City Police Department.  As a police officer, he helped to create outreach programs that provided mentoring and healthy activities for young people in the community.  After being promoted to the rank of Detective, Frank’s work with victims of violent crime and other tragedies exposed him to the devastating effects of mental health crises and the need for suicide awareness.  



He observed first-hand the devastating effects of mental health on families, communities, and in the workplace. This inspired him to speak extensively about the simple tools that friends, loved ones, and co-workers can use to practice self-care and observing those around you who may be experiencing negative or dark thoughts.


Since his retirement fourteen years ago, Frank has continued to focus on and speak about mindfulness, self-care and suicide prevention. He is a Suicide Support Officer and certified breath coach who uses his experience and compassion to make the tools for peace and serenity accessible to a variety of individuals and audiences. Frank’s dynamic speaking style reflects his unique perspective as a devotee of Stoic philosophy and an avid practitioner of meditation and yoga as well as his enthusiasm for confronting and overcoming challenges with care. 

Since the covid pandemic Frank has been talking to audiences virtually and in person on how to find tranquility in these difficult times, Frank has also created a master class you can find on Elevate.ac.

Understanding Self-care
Simple ways to bring ourselves to tranquility & harmony

With a  few simple changes in our perception, we  can change the way we understand the environment around us. Once we start to grasp our world through a different lens, we can take simple steps to change our behaviors and develop insights into what motivates us, holds us back, and makes us feel rewarded.


Frank will teach you some effortless Breathing Techniques along with some very simple mindfulness methods like the Birds Eye View to alleviate negative behaviors in your day-to-day life, and to implement straightforward approaches to help you discover tranquility and harmony.


Frank’s approach to understanding and practicing self-care will help you access and maintain the inner peace that exists inside you.

Life is to be lived, not watched
Using the knowledge of our ancestors to enjoy our present day life.

We have all heard that history repeats itself, so why not learn the lessons and techniques your ancestors used to achieve balance?


Frank will begin by helping you deepen your understanding of your ancestors' life experiences.  By using examples from his own life of challenges that were resolved by drawing on the wisdom of his ancestors, Frank will explain why many of these age-old techniques still work.  He will help you see how you can apply the lessons of the past to keep your life in balance and confront modern-day problems.


Frank uses his understanding of the teachings of Stoic philosophy, combined with modern-day strategies, to explore how centuries of  insight can be applied to help you achieve greater peace today. His working-mans wisdom, informed by the tenets of ancient teachings and a practical approach to developing life skills, will inspire audiences to LIVE life and not watch it go by.

Suicide Awareness
Identifying the subtle "Tells" of suicidal thinking

We all have the ability to be compassionate and be empathetic to others, and we all want to help others in their time of need.  But sometimes we are not aware that a friend, loved one, or co-worker is suffering deeply or experiencing suicidal thoughts.


Becoming aware of  the simple phrases and behaviors that signal suicidal thinking and self-harm are the first step toward offering help and potentially saving a life. 


Frank will teach you techniques for identifying someone who might be contemplating suicide, unlocking the gifts of listening and understanding, and offering meaningful assistance at a time when intervention is crucial. 




I have had the pleasure of partnering with Frank in our volunteer work with POPPA throughout the years I have witnessed Frank display a high degree of integrity, responsibility and aspiration. He would always be the leader of our group. He retired from the NYPD in, 2007 and shortly thereafter became a dad to a beautiful little girl who he adores. A pivotal time in his life yet his drive and desire to helpful human beings by the experience he had during those years, of change. His astute judgment, and mature outlook in ensures a logical and practical approach to his endeavors.

It is an honor and pleasure pleasure to provide a wholehearted endorsement of my partner in saving lives.
