What is a Jack Talk?

Jack Talks are mental health presentations delivered by young people to young people. 

Trained and certified youth speakers use the power of personal stories and mental health education to inspire, engage, educate, and equip young people to look out for themselves and their peers.

In light of COVID-19, Jack Talks are entirely virtual - and entirely free! - through 2020. We now offer three versions of the Jack Talk - the Livestream: Classroom Edition and Pre-Recorded: Classroom Edition to help adult allies start important mental health conversations with the young people in their lives, and the Personal Edition for anyone, anywhere to educate themselves about mental health.
