In this course you will learn:
Nobody has more experience working with teens and school communities than Jeff Yalden has. Deep in the trenches for more than 25 years, Jeff spends every week in communities all over the country – working with schools, teens, and families – addressing suicide prevention and crisis intervention.
Jeff has been invited into school communities worldwide because of his hard-hitting, proactive and proven approach to teen suicide prevention. Many communities reach out to Jeff after a completed suicide to bring hope and healing, as well as to work with other at-risk students after the fact.
Jeff is deeply committed to suicide prevention and education. He is authentic and transparent in his approach – and always stresses the crucial role a teacher or school staff member plays in preventing a student suicide.
The Canadian Mental Health Association called Woodstock, Ontario, a “city in crisis.”
This small city was experiencing a suicide contagion when they invited Jeff to their community. In five days, Jeff worked his magic and since his visit in 2016, not one teen suicide has occurred.
In February 2016, after a small Indiana community suffered nine suicides in less than a year – including four teens in six weeks – they turned to Jeff. Within days, Jeff was there to restore hope the community, which was lost and struggling in its search for meaning and understanding.
2500 parents came out to hear Jeff speak, and there was not one suicide since Jeff’s visit.
Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation Superintendent, Mr. Brett Boggs, said, "Jeff Yalden's legacy will live on forever in our community."
Meanwhile, another happy-go-lucky, beautiful Indiana county was being turned upside down.
Out of the blue, Warsaw and surrounding Kosciusko County had become an area filled with unexpected and unprovoked darkness. Something had to be done. They needed something that would promote healthy thoughts from their young people.
Students there needed someone other than parents, teachers, counselors, administrators or friends to make a profound statement to them that is was going to be OK.
Jeff came into Warsaw and Wawasee Schools, touching hearts and changing lives.
Most recently, Stark County, Ohio and the Perry High School Community suffered nine suicides since August 2017 – with six of these in a ten-day period.
Jeff came into town on his own dime to speak one night after three teen suicides took place in just one day. He spoke at a local church with 500 ticketholders in attendance. Another 5000 watched on USTREAM as Jeff spoke about community unity and other topics like personal and parental responsibility – and the importance of asking for help.
Jeff has remained very active online with these communities in Stark County – offering advice, hope and healing to many. Although the schools in Perry Township are handling these issues in-house, Jeff will be presenting to another school community nearby, and will be coming back to the Perry Community again to speak on his own dime.
Over the years and across the country, Jeff has presented many teacher in-service programs mental health, teen suicide and suicide prevention. Many more communities have hired him to work with their counselors, social workers, and therapists.
All states are making suicide prevention mandatory for their school personnel – and mental illness threatens to become the biggest public health crisis of our time.
Now you can learn directly from Jeff online.
This course is based on everything Jeff has mastered in decades of service – his education, proven research, and countless hours spent at work in school communities nationwide.
