Fighting for the Mental Illness of Student Athletes

As we are coming to the close of Mental Health Awareness Month, we wanted to share the taped Healthy Living Series event, Tyler Talks. On April 14, Mark and Kym Hilinski, parents of Tyler Hilinski, spoke to athletes, coaches, and parents on the topic of mental health of student athletes.

Tyler Hilinski’s parents created Hilinski’s Hope, which is an organization that helps student athletes by providing the tools necessary for schools to implement the change needed to bring equality for those facing mental illness and injuries.
