Chris Sullivan ‘98 Speaks to Students About Mental Health
While he is working on projects such as This Is Us, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, or Stranger Things, Chris Sullivan ‘98 understands the importance of staying centered and taking care of his mental health.
Sullivan returned to campus on Wednesday, or “Hump Day” as his character in the Geico commercial might say, to speak to students about the importance of your mental health. Sullivan gave tips to the student body about how to stay mentally sharp and how to continue to be a “Man for Others” after graduation.
Among other tips, Sullivan pointed out how he talks to a therapist, exchanges daily text messages with his friends about what they are grateful for, and lives a healthy and active life in order to keep up with his mental well-being.
Sullivan works with a non-profit organization, “To Write Love on Her Arms,” that helps those struggling with depression, anxiety, and a variety of mental health issues. He spoke in-depth about how “tomorrow needs you.” Whether it is to hug your mother, help your brother, or spread joy, tomorrow needs you.
