Cole Arlandson Bio

Cole ArlandsonCole Arlandson is a Redding resident, works in retail and is a 2014 graduate of Anderson New Technology High School where he and three classmates proposed a thoroughly researched policy to address adolescent mental health challenges as part of his school’s Project Citizen assignment.

While he was in high school, Cole began a relationship with an older man that eventually became physically and psychologically abusive. This and other factors led him to deal with severe depression as an adolescent, but with the help of therapy, support from friends and family and expressing himself through writing and poetry, Cole has found stability and wellness.

Today, to inspire others to seek help, he is sharing his story through the Brave Faces program and other venues, and his presentation can highlight the following topics:

  • Depression
  • LGBTQ Identity and Mental Health
  • Trauma
  • Abusive Relationships
  • Family and Recovery
  • Youth and Mental Health
  • Stigma Reduction
