"Jasmine has such a welcoming and inviting presence. She has a great energy on and off stage that keeps attendees engaged throughout."
Kimberly Swinney

Many of us can’t wait to find out what music we listened to the most each year. How many hours did we spend listening to our favorite arist or a certain song?

But what if you could download a recap of the “playlist” that you hear more than any other? Jasmine wishes she could see a Spotify Wrapped list of the things she thinks about the most. 

Despite her cheerful personality, even she knows what it’s like to have negative thoughts stuck on repeat. 

It’s no surprise that the 6,000+ thoughts we have on a daily basis have a significant impact on our mental health. That impact can be positive or negative – depending on what thoughts you have on repeat. In this dynamic new program, Jasmine gives audiences a glimpse into some of the negative thoughts that used to play on a loop in the back of her mind. And now, she’s sharing the tools that helped her finally hit pause.

This program is designed to help you unpack the thoughts and mindset that often become second nature. In the process, we learn how to avoid making a minor frustration into a life-changing event. 

We learn how to press pause. 

Stop Half-Assin’ It

In this hard-hitting, direct, but well-received signature program, Jasmine C. Williams prescribes just what the doctor ordered for overwhelmed students or staff. Combining her impactful personal story of overcoming adversity as a college student with clear, actionable steps to incorporate in your own life. Jasmine’s thought-provoking message and approachable style leaves audiences inspired to overcome adversity, develop resilience, and develop positive coping habits for short- and long-term success.

Audience members will…

  • Explore strategies to thrive in college and beyond – even when weighed down by adversity or difficult life experiences.
  • Consider the importance of positive and negative experiences for personal growth.
  • Develop an understanding of healthy vs. unhealthy coping strategies to improve their mental well-being during stressful situations.
"Thank you so much for your presentation. I have had similar experiences and was really losing hope. Your speech was very needed."

Just a Little Spark: This is Not a Drill

Audience members will…

  • Practice positive, affirmative, help-seeking behavior
  • Develop a personalized plan to prepare for potential mental health crises
  • Investigate some of the most common feelings related to mental health and well-being for college students
“Jasmine was wonderful and very transparent with us leading up to the program. Our students walked away with many tangible steps and a new perspective in approaching the struggles that can occur during life.”
Abby Howard
Coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Life, New Mexico State University

Why don’t we intervene before it feels like our entire world is on fire? Because the challenges we face may start off as just a little spark. Yet the little sparks in our lives can quickly ignite – and suddenly our mental health feels like a blazing inferno. 

Jasmine knows from personal experience that there’s no one-size-fits all approach when it comes to improving your mental health. But she’s offering students something she didn’t have: a back up plan.

Her empowering program provides students with the tools to build an effective mental health action plan tailored to their own unique needs. As active participants in the development of their plans, students also learn to become their own advocates.

We know that the best time to prepare for a crisis is not when it’s occurring. This program offers strategies and resources students can utilize to proactively take care of their mental health. Whether they face a minor frustration or a life-changing event, their mental health action plan is on standby whenever they need it.

Breaking Up with the Fear of Public Speaking

Three out of every four people have a fear of public speaking. Whether we like it or not, public speaking is a crucial career skill for the classroom or board room.

From her undergraduate degree, working with one of the largest media companies in the country, and now as a professional speaker, Jasmine has developed a proven mindset and strategy to speak in front of any audience.

Mental Health Speaker

  • Apply simple strategies to improve their speaking skills, such as how to stop using “like” or “um.”
“I could immediately tell that she was going to be dedicated to the project, genuine in sharing her story and committed to helping spread a positive message. She perfectly balances speaking in an eloquent, yet real way that truly connects with college students and millennials alike.”
