Five Reasons You Need Tasha at Your School
or Youth Conference
When Tasha comes to your school or conference, she will speak about these relevant topics:
1. Resiliency – Overcoming obstacles, working through tough times in life, and determining to persevere.
2. Respect – The importance of respecting classmates, peers, and teachers.
3. Mental Health/Suicide Awareness - Helping students recognize the importance of asking for help and having a support team.
4. Choices – The importance of giving their best every day and knowing that the decisions they make can affect their future.
5. Attitude – Even though life is not fair, we do have the power to choose a positive attitude each and every day. Students will leave with a “Yes I Can” attitude.
Tasha can also incorporate your school/youth conference culture and other important themes that you are focusing on.

Is Mental Health & Suicide a Concern at Your School?
The PATH Curriculum Can Help!
The PATH Curriculum is a complete resource on mental health, suicide awareness, and social-emotional learning. Tasha and her team of experts created the PATH Curriculum to provide teachers, counselors, and adults who serve adolescents a key component that is missing in education today. PATH is an acronym for Purpose, Attitude, Team, and Hope and is a way of helping teachers and schools to deepen students’ understanding of mental health and suicide awareness, as it delivers a set of tools that can potentially serve them in every aspect of their lives.
"Tasha addressed our Wisconsin School Superintendents at our annual spring convention. She was extremely well received. At a time when educators recognize the importance of nurturing resilience, internal drive and self-confidence in all children, Tasha is the embodiment of those attributes. She is a role model for both children and adults. Her compelling story inspires everyone who hears it to reflect on the value of leading a fulfilling and purposeful life".
