Choose Your Audience
Matt uses his background in neuropsychology to tailor his programs to the developmental stages of his audiences. For student assemblies, he promotes “natural highs” and delivers important messages about resilience, positive social support and making healthy choices. He reinforces his points by using a simple acronym, LEAD:
Lean on healthy people for support.
Express yourself in a healthy way.
Achieve Natural Highs.
Don’t be afraid to take a stand.
“I think everyone should leave my program feeling better when they entered. One of my favorite outcomes is when a student feels validated by my message and leaves the program feeling encouraged to make healthy choices.”
