Our professional speakers provide engaging, encouraging, and safe mental health education that’s tailored for students, young adults, educators, professional groups, and other audiences.

Research shows that peer-to-peer outreach is the best way to reduce the stigma that surrounds mental health and encourage people, especially students, to seek help if they need it. That’s why Active Minds speakers are so effective. Their personal stories show that mental health struggles are common and there is both help and hope. Their relatable presentations interweave key mental health messages, creating an inspiring and educational experience for your audience.
