Join your colleagues at this year's OPPF dinner, silent auction with special guest speaker

Join your colleagues for this year's Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Foundation dinner, awards and silent auction. Then, listen to former OSU star running back, Maurice Clarett, as he shares his story of mental illness, addiction, prison time, recovery and redemption.

Following a phenomenal freshman year at Ohio State and a brief stint in the NFL as a 3rd round draft pick, Clarett had a series of personal setbacks which included struggles with mental illness, substance abuse, crime and ultimately prison time. Clarett was able to turn his life around which put him on a path helping others. His success as an author and motivational speaker enables Clarett to share his journey to self-accountability and personal responsibility. Clarett now describes himself as “just a man with hopes and dreams.”
