Colleges & Universities Mental Health Speaker

Youth, Youth, Youth . . . Jeff has always loved connecting with young adults 18 - 25

Mental health issues are on the rise on college campuses across the country. Our students need to know that there is quality mental health and counseling services readily available on campus.  It's important our students know they can be getting services from the campus counseling center that will improve one's quality of life while getting their education.  Sometimes you need an outside person who can share his story and encourage students that it's OK to ask for HELP.  Jeff does just that but in a way that he isn't lecturing.  They get it.  They appreciate his honest and transparent approach to mental health and silencing the stigma. 

Living in a new environment outside the familiarity of home can create overwhelming and stressful circumstances. College students can greatly benefit from understanding that a certain amount of stress is normal, but that too much stress can be unhealthy and unproductive. Knowing the signs of stress, its causes and how to manage it can be a great tool in promoting and preserving good mental health.

So, whether it is a motivational talk on mental health, suicide prevention training, or straight up motivation and adulting (we think this is now a word), Jeff is a great speaker for your campus.

Our youth today want real life talk and someone who understands them and what they are going through.
