Todd Inman      

Social Impact Speaker & Film Producer; Mental Health Survivor & Advocate

Film Producer Todd Inman originated a genre called Socially Impactful Entertainment. This genre uses comedy, drama and unscripted content to make the world a better place by shrinking barriers such as race, politics, and economics. Inman’s imagination and creativity have been partially shaped by being the first Black person to integrate his suburban elementary school.

Since a young age, Inman was influenced by an open mindedness to appreciate all people regardless of their race, nationality, political affiliation, or sexual preference. Inman believes that many of the world’s divisions could be cured if people laughed or cried when they saw their outrageous points of view represented on screen.

Inman was the 2021 winner of the Telly Award for Social Impact for TV. His project The White Bruh won alongside HBO, CBS, Al Jazeerah, and Comcast.

Inman also created the Act Successful workshop for at-risk youth in Philadelphia, PA. The workshop series uses the art of film production to show children that they can live a life of achievement and productivity. The workshop series has produced positive measurable results.

Todd Inman is a dynamic speaker who shares his journey as a mental health survivor. Inman had a mental breakdown in 2005 that destroyed the life he had built. It was revealed he had an undiagnosed mental health condition that was exasperated by an unexpected life family issue. He spent a miserable 2 years trying to find a treatment to stabilize his mind, including the abuse of alcohol. After almost losing hope, Inman was prescribed an effective treatment that put his life back on track. Through medication, therapy, exercise, and wise lifestyle choices, Inman effectively manages his demanding life.

After his breakdown, Inman was told by his psychiatrist that his life would be a success story if he could one day have the mental fortitude to simply get out of bed with a purpose, independently dress himself, and carry on basic conversations. Since 2007 he has far exceeded expectations for his comeback. He graduated with an MBA from a well-respected university; he returned to the corporate world as a technology salesperson; he found his love for filmmaking and became an award winner whose projects are on international streaming platforms; he has won awards for his community involvement; he restored damaged relationships with family and friends and celebrated 11 years sober in 2021. He is now a trained speaker for NAMI and has made it his life’s work to give other sufferers hope and to help erase the mental illness stigma. He has appeared as a guest panelist at the University of Pennsylvania’s ABCT symposium titled, “Promoting Better, Equitable Access to Evidence-Based Mental Health Services in a Community Behavioral Health System.”
