It's Okay Not To Be Okay

Depression is real. It’s not a hurt that you can simply make “go away,” and you can’t just “walk it off.” If you’ve ever suffered from it, or had a friend or family member who has, you know it can ravage a soul and leave a shell of a person. This program allows attendees to assess their own mental health and identify ways they can improve their daily self-care plan.

Jacob Dicus

Program Coordinator for Fraternity & Sorority Life, University of Southern Indiana

After one month of quarantine, I knew my employees needed support tending to their mental health. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found Archie! He built a strong connection via Zoom using his authenticity, humor, and personal journey and he kept everyone engaged so they put the self-care strategies into practice. Archie was the most valuable resource I could have given to my team, myself included!

Scott Swedberg

CEO & Founder, The Job Sauce

What you see is what you get, in a good way. Archie delivers programs like you have been friends for a long time and his message and outcomes resonate with attendees in a very real way!

Helen Lahrman

Sr. Director of Chapter Support, Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity

Too often young leaders are put into presentations and lectures that preach the same main talking points in a dull and boring manner. Archie’s presentation was anything but that. It was incredibly engaging, very impactful, and full of personal experience. I can honestly say this presentation changed my outlook on leadership and has made me a more effective leader.

Jared Holstad

Interfraternity Council, Washington State University

Archie provided his motivating and inspiring presentation "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" to our team of over 50 mental health counselors. Even people who preach & teach self-care all day, need to be reminded of its importance. His content was on point and presented in a way that kept our team interested and interactive. Our team is still talking about his presentation and how much they enjoyed it!

Fran McCoy

LCSW, Manager, Care Delivery, mindstrong

Archie is able to talk about a subject that is hard in a way that makes even the most introverted students engage in conversation. He takes the time to open up authentically about himself which leads the students to feel connected to him and open up as well. He is outstanding and I’ve only received incredible feedback from the students and staff who have heard him speak.
