Eric Hipple is a former Detroit Lions quarterback who was at the pinnacle of his career with a memorable, victorious performance on the Monday Night Football stage. He endured a horrific loss when his 15-year-old son was a victim of suicide, then he struggled with his own mental health in the aftermath. He turned his
personal tragedy into a mission to study and speak about mental health, inspired by the memory of his son, to prevent others from facing such a tragedy.
Hipple will speak about how families can live with depression, in an important Livonia Chamber of Commerce program that provides valuable information for your family and your workplace.
We are proud to have businesses sponsor high school tables at this event to help share the important message with our community's young adults. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sponsor a table of high school or college students.
Attendees are welcome to stay to meet Eric Hipple and purchase his book Real Men Do Cry, which he will autograph.
