Building Resilience for Mental and Emotional Health
"A message of resiliency that amazes and inspires."
C. Schwartz, Principal
Please note: With the COVID-19 pandemic placing many restrictions on schools, Tasha and Doug have designed hybrid presentation options to meet your school’s specific needs.
Tasha's story of tragedy, transformation, and triumph inspires students to know, no matter how dark things can get, there is hope.
A highly sought after speaker, she has inspired thousands of students throughout the nation, from upper elementary to high school.
Tasha is an absolute must in every school. With the alarming rise in suicide, along with the need for mental health education, Tasha will positively redirect students to combat the issues schools face today.
After a tragic theater accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down, she has discovered invaluable lessons that resonate with audiences of all demographics. Since 2007, she has been traveling across the country inspiring and challenging her listeners to overcome and persevere, no matter what life throws their way.
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".
