Hilinski’s Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization formed to promote awareness and education of mental health and wellness for student athletes. The Foundation’s mission is to educate, advocate, and remove the stigma associated with mental illness, while funding programs that provide student-athletes with the tools and resources that support their mental health and wellness.
The Hilinski’s Hope Foundation (H3H) was founded in 2018 by Mark and Kym Hilinski to honor the life of their son Tyler, who died by suicide on January 16, 2018. Tyler was a Division-1 QB at Washington State University, and his death was a shock to those around him, including his teammates family and friends. He showed no visible signs of depression or mental illness, and must have been suffering in silence.
