Austin Prep Presents: "Road to Recovery" with Andrew Kiezulas '99 hosted by Jessica Lenci and Nick Reynolds
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Now, more than ever, we must come together to support one another, break the stigma of mental health, and raise awareness of those living with mental illness.

Andrew Kiezulas '99 is celebrating nine years of sobriety. His extensive advocacy and substance use prevention work with people of all ages, particularly young people, is elevated by his own personal experience. Andrew is founder of the Young People in Recovery (YPR)- Portland, ME Chapter. He has presented on a local and national level at The Science of Recovery Conference, the YPR National Leadership Conference, and throughout high schools in the northeast.

With the help of Health and Wellness Counselors Jessica Lenci and Nick Reynolds, Andrew will navigate what the road to recovery looks like for active substance use disorder (SUD) as it relates to strength based solutions to processing trauma and finding recovery.

As Coach Maradei P'11, '12 would often say when Andrew played football for him, "Education is power. Education is what? Power." Andrew will define concepts including trauma, substance use disorder, and recovery and will show how SAMHSA's (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services) 8 dimensions of Wellness can serve as a framework for education and support.

May 18, 2021 07:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
