Beautiful Boy author David Sheff brings harrowing story of son's addiction to Breakfast of Champions

London, Ontario, February 6, 2020 - David Sheff will share his journey as a father through his son's addiction and battle with an undiagnosed mental illness at this year's Breakfast of Champions. David Sheff is the bestselling author of Beautiful Boy, a book recently made into a film starring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet.

"Anyone who has lived through it, or those who are now living through it, knows that caring about an addict is as complex and fraught and debilitating as addiction itself." ― David Sheff, Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction

The event is a celebration of those making great strides to advance mental health in London and beyond.
