Real Men Do Cry:  A Quarterback’s Inspiring Story of Tackling Depression and Surviving Suicide Loss

Real Men Do Cry is an incredible story of tragedy and triumph. After his 15-year-old son died of suicide, Eric fell into a debilitating downward spiral. Bankrupt and jailed for drunk driving, he found the strength to seek therapy for his own depression and was able to make an amazing comeback.  With unflinching honesty, Eric shares his journey, thus opening the door for others to realize that depression is treatable.

Real Men Do Cry is packed with practical resources for families living with depression and is a valuable tool for counselors and mental health professionals nationwide.  Resources include: Nine-symptom checklist for depression, Signs of depression and possible suicide risk, actions to avert depression. Eric works with the University of Michigan Depression Center as outreach coordinator, where he travels nationwide speaking to teens and adults about ways to recognize the signs of depression and risks for potential suicide. “For so long I had been subconsciously creating problems, major and minor, to distract myself from the central fact that my 15-year-old son Jeff was dead.  I somehow feel that if I can save just one life, then Jeff’s death was not in vain.”
