Do you know what every kid and teenager needs?
One caring adult.
The most powerful tool we have to help kids and teens heal from mental health challenges is you.
Love and empathy influence the brain in powerful ways.
That’s why I write books like SEEN and Beyond the Spiral with Dr. Chinwé Williams.
That’s why I created courses for parents like Parenting with Mental Health in Mind.
That’s why I give keynotes for churches, schools, and organizations that influence kids and teens.
Because the world needs you and your presence matters.
When you show up in a kid's or teen’s life, it might feel irrelevant.
But to a preschooler, it’s safety.
To an elementary schooler, it’s affirmation.
To a middle schooler, it’s being known.
To a high schooler, confidence.
To a young adult, it’s counsel.
I believe in you and the hope you bring.
Let’s spread some hope together.
Also, I have an official bio below.
Will Hutcherson is an author, speaker, and pastor. Will has been a Next Gen and Student Pastor for over 15 years. Over the past several years he has become increasingly passionate about finding practical ways to bring hope to kids and teens who are facing increasing amounts of anxiety, depression, and despair. This led to him starting Curate Hope, a non-profit that focuses on suicide prevention, mental health awareness, and partnering with schools, churches, and parents to help heal despair in teens. Will seeks to build a bridge between the local church and the schools and families that are navigating this mental health crisis. Through Curate Hope, Will speaks in public schools across the country, letting students know that there is always hope.
Will is a co-author of two books:
SEEN: Healing Despair and Anxiety in Kids and Teens Through the Power of Connection and
Beyond the Spiral: Why You Shouldn’t Believe Everything Anxiety Tells You.
