Mental Health Speaker – Depression, Suicide, Anxiety, and Stress
Your job is to find a speaker for your college students. A speaker that makes sense and who will connect at their level with the troubling times they’re going through. High expectations, stress, trying to understand where they will fit into life later on. The anxieties and stresses of everyday living and cell phones and social media platforms are creating more and more anxieties and lower self-esteem as young people are validating their lives through what they see on other peoples pages.

From 2006 – 2011, Jeff Yalden was a MADE Coach on MTV MADE. His show “The Comedian” was one of the longest running and most successful shows MADE has ever done.

Jeff is proud to say that Alyssa is still a very close friend and Jeff is still very influential in her life. She is now 26 years old, married with two children, and living in Idaho.
