The first 100 attendees will receive a complimentary copy of “What Made Maddy Run”.
Please join CONNECT for a community conversation with Kate Fagan to help teens deal with the pressures of academics, athletics, social media and mental illness. The author will share the haunting, true story of nationally-ranked student-athlete Madison Holleran. She seemed to have it all, but died by suicide. Like teens in Summit County, Maddy was surrounded by loving parents, friends, supportive coaches, concerned teachers and mental health professionals, yet everyone missed her cries for help. Fagan will address the problems of ‘destructive perfectionism’ and promote an understanding that seeking help is not a weakness. Maddy’s struggles offer life-saving lessons for anyone who works with – and loves – young people.
