Just a Little Spark: This is Not a Drill

Keynote | Workshop | Virtual

Students are struggling. They’re feeling anxious. Uncertain. Overwhelmed. Lonely. But they often don’t consider seeking mental health support until they’ve reached their limit.

Why don’t we intervene before it feels like our entire world is on fire? Because the challenges we face may start off as just a little spark. Yet the little sparks in our lives can quickly ignite – and suddenly our mental health feels like a blazing inferno. 

Jasmine knows from personal experience that there’s no one-size-fits all approach when it comes to improving your mental health. But she’s offering students something she didn’t have: a back up plan.

Her empowering program provides students with the tools to build an effective mental health action plan tailored to their own unique needs. As active participants in the development of their plans, students also learn to become their own advocates.

We know that the best time to prepare for a crisis is not when it’s occurring. This program offers  strategies and resources students can utilize to proactively take care of their mental health. Whether they face a minor frustration or a life-changing event, their mental health action plan is on standby whenever they need it.

Audience members will…

  • Practice positive, affirmative, help-seeking behavior

  • Develop a personalized plan to prepare for potential mental health crises

  • Investigate some of the most common feelings related to mental health and well-being for college students
