As a resident of the Myrtle Beach community, after two teens suicides locally, Jeff decided to do more in the community. The Jeff Yalden Foundation, Inc.’s Speak Up ; Reach Out Campaign is about bringing awareness, training, and educational resources to our local schools and community.
We are looking for our school staff personnel: administrators, teachers, guidance counselors, teens, parents, and community leaders to help us. We are all responsible and play a big role in educating our teens and parents. The more we are talking the more we are supporting one another and silencing the stigma. Join the movement and help us save lives and let people know it’s OK to Speak Up ; Reach Out.
Watch Jeff’s TEDx talk, “TEEN SUICIDE: The WHY Behind America’s Suicide Epidemic.”
