Suicide rates are on the rise and impact so many people worldwide,
including and especially in the Louisville area. In an effort to bring awareness to mental health and suicide prevention, we invite you to join us for the
Centerstone Heals Luncheon. Eddie George will be the featured speaker, sharing his own personal struggles with mental illness to help with this worthwhile cause.
Eddie was a Heisman-winning running back at Ohio State then immediately enjoyed great success in his first year in the NFL, winning the 1997 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. He continued to accomplish a significant amount in his 9 seasons in the NFL, most of that time with the Tennessee Titans.
However, Eddie was plagued by dark days of depression and suicidal thoughts as he came off the high of a pro-football career and tried to navigate life off the field. But he immersed himself in the world of acting and he took himself from that dark place to Broadway.
Now as an entrepreneur, he is a restaurant owner, a professor at The Ohio State and a health and wellness advocate, promoting the mind/body connection and its impact on mental health
