The upcoming Student Success Forum will featured a nationally known speaker, Jeff Yalden.

Yalden has been called North America's No. 1 teen mental health speaker and consultant. His talks are usually centered around personal responsibility and being your own best advocate.

The forum is open to students, parents and community members. It will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 5 at the Dakota Medical Center, 4141 28TH AVE S, Fargo.

Lynne Olien, mother of West Fargo student Justin Olien, who died by suicide in 2016, will also speak at the event. Olien started the fundraiser "Justin's Break the Silence" to raise awareness for those struggling with any form of depression.

West Fargo Public Schools and Justin's Break the Silence are asking members of the public to register online on the event's Facebook page. The event is free.
