Mental Wellness Week: Speaker Brent Scarpo to present 'The Dog that Saved My Life'

By Abigail Olsen

Brent Scarpo, speaker and life coach will be on campus with his dog Sophie to present, "The Dog that Saved My Life," at 7 p.m. Sept. 21 in the Cottonwood Room of the K-State Student Union. Tables also will be in Bosco Student Plaza from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Scarpo was immobilized by depression until he met Sophie, the dog. Battling against suicidal thoughts and addiction, Scarpo found happiness again with the help of his unique companion. Focusing on depression, mental illness, addiction and suicide, Scarpo will share his very personal story and journey of how he came out stronger.
