We primarily help prevent alcohol and substance abuse among youth and provide mental health training and education for schools and parents.
Through the use of storytelling, keynote speakers, hosting rehabilitation workshops for criminal justice rehabilitation centers and providing Mental Health Certified First Aid workshops by our certified Mental Health First Aid instructors, we help struggling individuals thrive in their communities. Thus creating a safer world in which we all live, play and work. Life CONsequences’ educational programs provide invaluable lessons and motivation to BOTH youth and adults.
Keynote speaker and mental health advocate Ethan Fisher draws from his life experience to challenge, motivate, and inspire his audiences. From star high school athlete, to prison inmate, to the recipient of an MBA with honors, Ethan’s life is a lesson in accountability, passion and perseverance.
Growing up in a family that did not speak openly about mental health, Ethan spent his teenage years secretly battling clinical depression while he publicly received accolades for his uncommon talent on the basketball court.
He began to self-medicate, leading to a years-long battle with alcoholism and substance abuse that derailed his basketball career and ended in a 3-year prison sentence.
Sober since 2004, Ethan went on to become the first athlete in Colorado to play college basketball on inmate status and was recognized as an All-Conference and Most Valuable Player (MVP). He graduated summa cum laude, was awarded the entrepreneurship student of the year award and was the recipient of the President’s award.
Ethan’s experiences became a catalyst for his devotion to inspiring others. He has spoken in hundreds of cities, motivating and engaging almost 150,000 audience members to take hold of their lives and pursue their dreams. A raw and passionate speaker, Ethan captivates audiences with his story of adversity and his techniques for channeling desire into purposeful action.
A staunch mental health and substance abuse advocate, Ethan founded LifeCONsequences as a non-profit in order to support and educate students and student-athletes. He has been featured in a best-selling book and interviewed for other books, newspaper articles, numerous podcasts, radio and television shows.
