Canadian NHL Clubs build awareness for mental health and wellness through \"Hockey Talks\"
Winnipeg, MB. - The Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Vancouver Canucks, with the support of the National Hockey League, are proud to announce Hockey Talks, a month-long initiative to bring increased dialogue and awareness to mental health and effective treatments.

Winnipeg, MB. - The Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Vancouver Canucks, with the support of the National Hockey League, are proud to announce Hockey Talks, a month-long initiative to bring increased dialogue and awareness to mental health and effective treatments. A game night in each respective city will be dedicated to Hockey Talks where each team will lend their voice to help encourage a national conversation about mental health and wellness.

The seven Canadian NHL teams recognize the importance of education and open dialogue of mental health and wellness at a national level. The goal of Hockey Talks is to bring this topic to the forefront in the public realm and alleviate misconception and stigma that has been unfairly associated with mental illness. With the collaboration of the seven Canadian hockey clubs, this message can have an extensive reach, connecting with citizens of all ages and backgrounds.



The Winnipeg Jets will host Hockey Talks on February 7, 2013 as they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at MTS Centre. Game time is 7:00 pm. That night, the Jets will raise mental health awareness through in-arena messaging as well as having Mental Health Resource Guides accessible to all fans. The programming and dialogue brings the opportunity to provide information to fans in recognizing mental health issues and better understanding the challenges associated with mental illness and to connect those in need of support with mental health organizations. Jets players will also don a Hockey Talks decal on their helmets for the entire month of February in support of this initiative. Fans are encouraged to join the conversation by sharing personal experiences or messages of support via social media with the hashtag #hockeytalks.


True North Sports & Entertainment Limited will hold a media conference on Monday, February 4, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. in the Press Box Restaurant at MTS Iceplex. Assistant GM Craig Heisinger and Executive Director of the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation Dwayne Green will unveil a significant education plan for Mental Health Awareness among youth in our province.

MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS


One in five Canadians will experience a mental health problem or illness in their lifetime; it indirectly affects all Canadians at some point through a family member, friend or colleague. Stigma or discrimination attached to mental illnesses presents a serious barrier, not only to diagnosis and treatment but also to acceptance in the community. 


Approximately 70% of mental health problems and illnesses have their onset during childhood or adolescence. Identifying the signs early and getting connected to tools and support is the most important way to prevent problems from becoming worse. Mental health problems and illnesses can be treated effectively.
