Virtual Jack talks/pre-recorded talks for individuals

The virtual Jack Talk is designed for young people aged 15-24. The talk is delivered by two trained youth speakers who share their own mental health stories. They educate audiences about the basics of mental health, including the dual spectrum of mental health on which we all - without exception - exist. Speakers share lessons on how to recognize signs of struggle in themselves and their peers, and how to be there for those who might be struggling. Most importantly, the Talk covers how to connect with resources, so that audiences have actionable next steps they can undertake.
