"My Battle with Mental Illness: Finding Hope in the Midst of Suffering," Jake Sullivan. Sullivan played basketball at Iowa State (2000-04), silently battling depression and obsessive compulsive disorder in the midst of his athletic and academic accomplishments. 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.

The Story County Mental Health Resource Fair will precede the lecture, 6:00-7:00pm, in the South Ballroom.

Jake Sullivan was a 3-time All-Big 12 selection, 3-time Academic All-American, and was voted to the Iowa State All-Century Team. He graduated from Iowa State in 2004 with a degree in psychology and went on to start two non-profit organizations, Kingdom of Hoops and Acts 2 Collective. He is currently the student and young adult pastor at Grace Church in Eden Prairie.

Representatives from ISU Police Department and Student Health and Wellness will be available to share information on campus resources during the closing Q&A discussion.
