Tired in ways sleep can’t fix
Recently, high school mental health speaker, Jeff Yalden, was meeting with a 16 year old young man during one of his visits to a school community for a teen mental health and teen suicide prevention visit. This young man was showing signs of suicidal ideation and had asked to speak with Jeff personally.
After sharing his story and his pain, he had asked Jeff if he wanted to hear his voice memo’s he had in his phone that nobody had ever listened to. These voice memo’s were of him talking about his pain and wanting to end his life. They were like his journal where he kept his feelings and thoughts, but instead of on paper it was him speaking it out.
Teens Are Tired In Ways You Don’t Understand
After listening, Jeff paused for a second and said, “Can I ask you a question?”
The young man said, “Yeah.“
“Are you tired?“, asked Jeff.
The young man replied with, “Mr. Yalden, I’m tired in ways sleep can’t help.“
That moment was defining for Jeff, the author of Teen Suicide: The WHY Behind America’s Suicide Epidemic. It was this moment that Jeff knew he needed to do more to help young people struggling with this tiredness, anxiety, feelings of being overwhelmed, and moments of distress.
As a yoga teacher, Jeff credits his yoga practice to saving his life in 2015. Since then, Jeff has become a certified 200 YTT (Yoga Teacher Trainer) specializing in Ashtanga Vinyasa and currently teaches online and in studio. Jeff decided to create a meditation practice for teens and high schools as part of his BRACE Program: Breathe, Recover, Act, and have Compassion for Every One, but most importantly for yourself. He did this because he sees the need to help our school communities with their teen mental health challenges.
BRACE is an online program coming for school communities to help schools with their teen suicide prevention protocols and suicide prevention awareness for teens, school personnel, and families. This program is going to consist of more meditation practices, simple yoga for teens, and also downloadable checklists for administrators to cover themselves legally and to make sure they’re following the latest research on teen suicide.
Teen Mental Health Speaker for Adults too
After Jeff speaks, all too often, a teacher, school counselor, parent, school resource officer and even sometimes a coach will approach Jeff and say, “You weren’t just speaking to the students. Thank you.” Jeff realizes his transparency and vulnerability with his story hits home and impacts many of people. Jeff gives people permission to realize, it’s okay to not be okay and it’s okay to do something about it.
