Hilinski's Hope was formed, as was the Rader Ward Foundation, after the loss of a son to suicide. Tyler Hilinski was an outstanding college football player, so Hilinski’s Hope focuses on college mental health, particularly among athletes. They are working to fund programs that will help educate, advocate, and to destigmatize mental illness.
Previously on this feed I’ve posted articles about the Hilinski family. This one from Ivan Maisel, a journalist who also lost a son to suicide, affected me profoundly. And this one from Sports Illustrated was excellent as well. The Hilinski’s Hope website has an entire News & Events section comprising many of the wonderful articles and videos about Tyler and about the foundation’s work.
