Mental Health Speaker -  Avoiding Burnout and Find Purposeful Work with Jordan H. Davis

We must empower young people to play an active role in maintaining their wellness in pursuit of their academic and professional careers.

The Problem

It's difficult for students to stay motivated when they have trouble connecting what they've learned inside the classroom to their lives outside of school. It's not enough to challenge students to "be their best selves" - students must be self-motivated to persist, graduate, be leaders, and live meaningful lives as adults. At the same time, grind culture, perfectionism, grief and loss, and anxiousness about the future make work-life-school balance hard for students. How do we communicate a message of resilience to students that speaks to how they see the world today? How do we teach students to be resilient while taking care of their physical and mental wellbeing?

My Design Jordan Facing Audience Heavily Edited.HEIC

How Jordan can help solve it:

Jordan teaches students the importance of community budling and how they can support each other, because doing so contributes to the success of all students. Jordan's message touches on the following themes:  

  • Framing joy as necessary for personal wellness, creativity and productivity 

  • Adopting a framing that's deeper than traditional "self-care" advice; seeing rest as a form of resistance to grind culture

  • De-stigmatizing help-seeking behaviors 

  • Establishing healthy work-life/school-life balance, and how to maintain that balance in the face of adversity

  • Productive ways of navigating rejection

  • Using speculative design and backward design to be optimistic about the future 

Your audience will leave the keynote:


Inspired to make meaningful connections with one another - resilience is not a solo effort


Knowing what to do when they feel "stuck" or unmotivated for extended periods of time


Skills for maintaining a healthy work-life balance


Seeing themselves as designers of their own educational and professional experiences
