Speak up, man!
Stigma thrives in silence. We thrive in sharing.
I've had the incredible opportunity to speak with students, health professionals, and organizations around the world. Each experience reminds me of the strength in vulnerability and the power of authentic storytelling.
Focusing primarily on my lived experience, I hope my presentations will inspire, empower, and change the narrative around men's mental health and eating disorders. Some of the topics I speak about include:
Changing The Narrative Around Eating Disorders
Confronting The Stigma Around Men's Mental Health
Challenging Diet Culture Norms
Enough Already: Cultivating Self-Compassion
Internalized Homophobia & Mental Wellness
Interested in scheduling a virtual or in-person event for your group?
Changing The Narrative College Tour
My latest initiative is aimed at reaching students in all 50 states!
When I share my story on a college campus, I’m:
ELEVATING awareness and empowering students to seek the help they deserve.
CONFRONTING the stigma and showing young men that there is strength in vulnerability.
ILLUSTRATING the lived experience to equip the next generation of mental health professionals.
CHANGING the narrative around eating disorders and mental health.
Whether virtual or in-person, I am determined to speak with students in all 50 states but I need your help. Do you know of a college or university that might be interested in hosting an awareness event? Or perhaps a class that could benefit from hearing my story? Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's keep this conversation going!
"Having a male’s voice in the conversation about the lived experience of an eating disorder is a rare and precious gift. Jason’s commitment to building awareness and advocating for help-seeking is exceptional. His ability to connect with his audience transcends boundaries of gender, age, and personal life experience. His messages will resonate with everybody, including students, parents, and both future and current health professionals."
