Portrait of Rick Seidler

 

Our Honorary Walk Chair is UnityPoint Health – Trinity CEO Rick Seidler. “I’m honored to raise awareness about one of the most important issues our communities face,” he said. “I have personal experience with severe depression, which regrettably led to my father completing suicide when I was a young adult.” Through his NAMIWalks role, Seidler will speak out to break the social stigma surrounding mental illness and encourage persons to seek help for this treatable health condition.
