We can all learn something from Kyler Erickson.

“Kyler Erickson is able to provide a perspective to students that is critical to their development as young people.

About Kyler Erickson

Top Line Image

That which once started out as a dream,
is now a goal.

As a senior in high school, Kyler Erickson witnessed a school shooting, done so by one of his classmates. As it turned his world upside down, he struggled to find hope in such a horrific time. It took him a year and a half to finally admit to, and seek help for his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

He first talked to his family and close friends, telling them how much mental pain he was going through. Kyler went through months and months of vigorous therapy, a procedure called EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).

After being healed and finding peace, he followed his dreams and is currently speaking in Omaha, NE. Kyler is an ESPN Analyst, Speaker, and Director of Suicide Prevention. Kyler has not, and will not stop showing people how much they are loved. He focuses on mental illness and overcoming obstacles. He’s is a kid with an incredible story, and an even bigger heart. He refuses to be stopped, on his way to changing lives.
