Countless students are in pain, and many are uncertain how to manage this pain. As a result, some individuals turn to substance use, self-harm, or even suicide. Sadly, many students are suffering in silence. A smile can appear on the outside while they are in pain on the inside. For years, this was Allan. A university professor saw beneath Allan’s mask and changed his entire life through a simple process. Allan shares this approach in his message, and reassures his audience that nobody needs to be fixed, but that the value of being seen and heard is immeasurable. Drawing from personal and professional experiences, Allan explains what drives students to engage in destructive behaviors.

Allan ensures that teachers will walk away feeling better equipped to deal with the countless challenges that our students face.
