Join us for a riveting conversation with Charles Haley—a Dallas Cowboy legend and Hall of Famer. Haley faced the isolating effects of mental illness during his NFL career with his diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Over time, Haley has helped others dealing with mental health challenges find common ground and acceptance—two key values The Well Community provides for its members as they regain stability and purpose. Charles will discuss parts of his journey with veteran and award-winning television sports anchor and broadcast journalist, Scott Murray. From them we’ll learn more about mental health, stigma and the role the community has in bringing hope and healing. We’ll also have the opportunity to support The Well Community.
