May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and a former Detroit Lions player is coming forward to talk about his struggles with depression. WZZM 13 news anchor Juliet Dragos was the emcee for the 2nd annual "Live Laugh Love" rally to bring awareness to the millions who suffer from mental illness. The keynote speaker this year was former Lions quarterback Eric Hipple, who played with Detroit from 1980 to 1990. Hipple told his personal story of depression following the suicide of his 15-year-old son.
