Montee Ball – Dealing with Addiction
Wednesday, May 15; 6:30-8:00 p.m. (doors open at 6:00 p.m.)
Join us for an inspirational program with former football star Montee Ball as he provides a candid view of his personal struggles with alcohol and mental illness. By sharing the story of his life and struggles, Montee Ball – former Heisman Trophy finalist, and University of Wisconsin-Madison and Denver Broncos running back – helps the audience see how through change, they can become more fulfilled human beings.
Montee was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He played college football at Wisconsin, where he was twice recognized as the best running back in the Big Ten Conference and a consensus first-team All-American.
Montee started drinking heavily in college, and his anxiety and depression kicked in as well. He told himself over and over, “This is not going to affect me on the field” – until, while playing in the NFL just a couple years later, it did.
Montee’s story and message is appropriate for young teens, adults and people struggling with or those supporting others with mental illness or addiction problems.
