The 13th Annual Faces of Resilience event raised over $400,000!

The 13th Annual Faces of Resilience event was held at Ohio Stadium on September 20, 2022. Funds raised support the Center for Psychiatry and Resilience which focuses on depression, anxiety, trauma and addiction to ultimately prevent suicide and drug overdose deaths, and the Stress, Trauma and Resilience (STAR) Program, an initiative that provides support for health care providers and first responders who experience significant stress and trauma in the services they provide each day.

Harry Miller shared his inspiring story of personal resilience as this year's keynote speaker. The former Ohio State football player made national news this year when he announced that he was medically retiring from football.  Mr. Miller is currently a senior at Ohio State majoring in mechanical engineering. His motto is “Dum Spiro Spero - While I breathe, I hope.”
