Raising Teens Will inspire

The Raising Teens Speaker Bureau is made up of several experts in teen mental health who have deep experience promoting better mental health and wellness for teenagers. They will inspire students, parents and teachers to become more capable, confident communicators and teach them how to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and to become more resilient when faced with adversity.

Funded by donations from local private donors, Raising Teens is a fully not for profit entity that sponsors presentations and services for qualified organizations who can not afford to host speakers in their school or communities.
