Karen F. Wills,
UPC Nebraska is excited to announce an event hosting best-selling author and public speaker, Nic Sheff on Friday, October 22, 2021, at 7:30 p.m.

Recognized as a “life-changing speaker”, Nic Sheff travels the world to put a human face on the nation’s mental health and substance abuse epidemic to combat the strong stigma surrounding addiction. He encourages others to seek and embrace the help available to them.

In his New York Times Bestselling Memoir, Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines, Sheff shares his personal, unglamorized journey of substance abuse and mental health disorders. This UNL event will allow students to hear Sheff discuss his journey, road to recovery, talking effectively with others in your life about these issues and his personal prayer and meditative techniques to connect with himself, among other topics.

Following Sheff’s presentation will be a special screening of “Beautiful Boy”, the acclaimed film starring Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carrell.

This live, in-person event is free for UNL students with an Event Pass and will take place at the Nebraska Union Swanson Auditorium. Email with any questions or requests for accommodations.
