Putting Stigma In The Sin Bin

Campaign focuses on helping to end the stigma associated with mental health

Putting Stigma in the Penalty Box

The National Hockey League Alumni Association (NHLAA) and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) set to join forces for the second session of the Mental Health Awareness Campaign.

The campaign focuses on helping to end the stigma associated with mental health challenges through a series of speaking engagements.

“It is important that we continue to break the silence and encourage courageous conversations between family, friends, co-workers and members of the public, to establish a more non-judgmental and supportive working environment for all members.”

“Mental health is something that affects us all. The NHL Alumni Association is proud to continue their partnership with the Ontario Provincial Police to offer help and hope for anyone in a tough spot. Building off of our first session with NHL Alumni, Jay Harrison, we are continuing to contribute to the conversation, bringing awareness to mental health and putting stigma in the penalty box for those affected today, tomorrow, and for our future generations.”
