The SHE MATTERED Presentation has 2 distinct components. Ideally, it works best if done in 2 sessions, however the content be condensed in order to get the full benefit of the program. Adult facilitators with mental health training are required for each child/student discussion group.
I am available to speak and conduct a presentation at a variety of venues. The presentation will be tailored to suit the audience.
Other venues and organizations can host this type of presentation as well, such as:
schools - public, private, parochial
senior centers (helpful information for grandparents)
parent groups (already existing or one can be assembled), incl PTO's/PTA's
colleges & universities - education, social work, psychology majors
anyone who works with children, teens & young adults
Please be aware that I do not provide a specific program or prescription to follow. My purpose is to use Alexa's story, the impact it had on my family, and the lessons learned from it, as a guide in creating your own plan to combat various forms of bullying. Also, to educate students and staff of warning signs that may indicate that a peer/student is in crisis and suggest some appropriate responses to it.
Fees are determined by factors including size of group, length of presentation, travel distance etc. A percentage will be donated to an organization or cause meaningful to Alexa in her memory.
