This year’s event will feature artists, athletes, and experts sharing honest conversation about their personal experiences with mental health in a continued effort to raise awareness and support. Because talk saves lives.

"Mental health and awareness obviously is important for me," one of our guest speakers this year, NFL star Dak Prescott, explains. "When COVID hit the world, it affected a lot of people as it did me and I experienced my first thoughts and effects of depression and anxiety," he admits, "but it wasn't until April 23, 2020 that my brother took his life from just mental health."

"It became a core in my foundation," Dak adds, "the Faith Fight Finish foundation -- therefore people can have their lives saved and don't have to take their lives like my brother did."
