My Battle with Mental Illness: Finding Hope in the Midst of Suffering
The Story County Mental Health Resource Fair will precede the lecture, 6:00-7:00pm, in the South Ballroom.
Cyclone basketball legend Jake Sullivan was a student athlete at Iowa State from 2000 to 2004. He was a 3-time All-Big 12 selection, 3-time Academic All-American, and was voted to the Iowa State All-Century Team. In the midst of his many athletic and academic accomplishments Sullivan also silently battled depression and obsessive compulsive disorder. He will speak about the steps he took to navigate his challenges with mental illness and the importance of recognizing that mental illness can affect anyone - even people who appear to have it all.
