Chris Herren – Richmond 2022 Speaker Series

Chris Herren—The Struggle with Addiction & Mental Illness

Chris Herren

Former NBA Player Chris Herren will share his poignant and brutally honest personal story at the Holiday Inn in Richmond, IN on Wednesday, October 19 as part of Meridian’s Community Health Speaker Series.

Chris was a celebrated star before graduating high school. He went on to play at Boston College, Fresno State, and in the NBA – including playing on his hometown team, the Boston Celtics – and seven seasons overseas before losing it all to the disease of addiction. His recovery journey has been documented in the bestselling memoir, “Basketball Junkie,” the Emmy-nominated ESPN Films documentary, “Unguarded” and in countless local, national and international stories by The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Sports Illustrated.

Following Herren’s presentation, a panel comprised of community leaders and officials will discuss issues related to substance use, recovery, and ideas for local solutions.

A complimentary lunch will be provided by Meridian Health Services.

If you or someone you know is suffering from substance use or addiction, Meridian can help turn things around and provide a fresh start. Call 866-306-2647 to begin the journey to a new way of living.
