Mental Health Empowerment Speaker, Ivy Watts
Classroom Building Auditorium - Stan Dakken Drive, Mayville, ND 58257
Ivy Watts is empowering students to tell their stories, by sharing hers. A former student-athlete who appeared to have it all together, graduating summa cum laude and a top-30 finalist for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award, on the inside struggled daily with anxiety, self-worth, and depression. After finally seeking help, Ivy, who is now mental health first aid certified, promotes mental wellness and reduces stigma around mental illness by sharing her story through public speaking and her blog, Beautifully Simply You. Ivy empowers others to speak their truths, know that they are not alone, learn the beauty of self-love, and find strength to keep fighting for their tomorrows.
