Getting Sacked and Bouncing Back: A Quarterback Story of Recovery  (6012)

09/25/2013 1:00 PM - 09/25/2013 2:30 PM

About the Presenter: Eric Hipple is a former Detroit Lions NFL quarterback. Since his 15 year-old son Jeff’s suicide, Hipple has devoted his life to building awareness and breaking down the stigma surrounding depressive illnesses. He also received the
prestigious 2008 Lifetime Achievement award given by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and was awarded a presidential citation at the American Psychological Association’s 2006 Annual Convention for his six years of national community-based work
combating adolescent depression and suicide prevention. His message of resilience has provided mental health awareness to professional groups, military, law enforcement, schools, communities, and through the Under the Helmet campaign, thousands of High School
and youth coaches across the country. The Recovery Experience... Life doesn’t always go as we plan. Hardship, loss and grief can lead to mental health struggles. In this talk, Eric will identify stressors or life events that can change the way that we think,
feel and behave. He will illustrate this with examples from his own life experiences. He will also discuss ways to reduce stigma and treatment.
