Dak Prescott Keynote’s Metrocare 13th Annual Meal for the Minds Luncheon

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, Metrocare held their 13th Annual Meal for the Minds Luncheon on Tuesday May 10th at the Hilton Anatole.

During this event over 300 guests gathered as NBC 5’s Laura Harris engaged in a conversation about the importance of mental health resources with Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott. Since the tragic loss of his youngest brother, Prescott has become a champion in the mental health space, going so far as to start his own foundation Faith, Fight, Finish, which prioritizes mental health in an attempt to end the epidemic of suicide. 

“During the COVID pandemic, I lost my brother, Jace, to suicide. Though nothing can ever bring Jace back, I’ve made a promise that his will be ‘a life taken to save millions.’ I’m fiercely determined to champion those who battle mental illness by helping them to always know they are not alone, find their purpose and realize that their lives matter!”

Business leaders, elected officials, and concerned community partners listened as Prescott
shared his personal stories and insight into his struggles with mental health, leaving the
audience captivated by his courage and determination.
