Feel It All – Addressing Mental Health in the Mountains from a Locals Perspective

Feel It All chronicles professional skier Drew Petersen’s journey from the depths of suicidal depression to finding purpose, strength, and resilience

Looking in from the outside living in our mountain towns seems like perpetual pristine powder days, wildflowers and camaraderie. There is a darker side that lurks in our communities and a new film, Feel It All chronicles one man’s experience with suicidal depression and his personal mission to shred the stigma of mental health and suicide.

Professional skier Drew Petersen’s has come forward and is sharing his journey from the depths of suicidal depression to finding purpose, strength, and resilience by setting a goal to run the Leadville Trail 100 ultramarathon. By blending the experience of skiing the highest 14,000-foot peaks in Colorado that surround the Leadville 100 course with the emotional, immersive story arc of running one of the most iconic 100-mile ultramarathons on the planet, the film shows how within the struggle of living with mental illness lies an opportunity to access an infinite, inexhaustible well of strength to achieve our limitless potential. The film aims to ultimately create powerful cultural change around mental health awareness and suicide prevention.

Summit County local Drew Petersen, Building Hope, Arapahoe Basin, and Summit High School are pleased to present the world premiere of “Feel It All”, followed by a discussion about mental health in the mountains. There will be a wellness fair before and after the film featuring local organizations that support Summit County.
