Former NFL player Dwight Hollier was selected to be the keynote speaker on August 4th for an event in Detroit that discusses stigmas typically given to people who have been diagnosed with a mental disorder. The event took place at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center and was hosted by the Farmington Hills-based Community Network Services and the Northeast Guidance Center in Detroit, who are strong advocates for fair treatment for all people who live with mental challenges. The former Dolphin linebacker is currently the director for transition and clinical services for the NFL.
Hollier was born in Hampton, Virginia and got his football playing career started when he attended the University of North Carolina for his college years. He entered the 1992 NFL Draft where he was picked up by the Miami Dolphins in the 4th round, and that’s where he played the most of his career for a total of seven seasons. In 2000 he did one last season with the Indianapolis Colts before officially retiring from the sport.
Hollier gave a great talk at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center in early August on how important it is to create awareness and fair treatment for people suffering from a mental condition. His words were meaningful and inspiring, and engaged with the audience throughout his time in the spotlight.
