The 4th and Forever Foundation was founded by former NFL player Keith O'Neil. Keith retired from the NFL after winning the Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts. Diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in retirement, Keith began a multi-year struggle in coping with the diagnoses and the stigma that accompanied it. After several years of fighting his battle, Keith found wellness by becoming an active participant in his own care. Keith then became determined to help others who struggle with Bipolar Disorder.
