A Message From Tom:

Hi, I’m Tom Thelen, lead author of Mental Health 101 for Teens. Most importantly, I’m a husband and a dad. I’ve been married to my wife Casie since 2003, and we have four wonderful (most of the time wonderful) children together. As I grow as a husband and dad, I become a better speaker.

Since 2012, I’ve spoken at over 800 schools and conferences on the topics of bullying prevention, resiliency, and mental health. My message has always been 100% positive, non-controversial, and free from any political or religious agenda.

As a teen, my English Teacher believed in me at a time when I didn’t believe in myself. Through her guidance, I got counseling and started taking the positive steps needed to turn my life around. Now I get to take that same message of hope to students, parents, and educators around the world.

My goal in every speech is to 1) Connect with the audience through an authentic message. 2) Teach universal values like respect, responsibility, and resiliency. And 3) Inspire everyone to take the next positive step in their lives. When students take ownership of their choices, it creates a triple-win for the students, the families, and the school district.

I look forward to partnering with you to bring the message of bullying prevention and mental health to the students, parents, and educators in your district!
