The Calgary Hitmen will be hosting a special mental health awareness game next month.
The team has partnered with the Calgary arm of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA Calgary) to promote the importance of good mental health during its Feb. 1 game againstConnor Bedard andthe Regina Pats.
“Most people who are living with a mental illness see their first symptoms before the age of 18,” said Sara Jordan, executive director of CMHA Calgary.
“So being able to help these young athletes develop skills on how to help themselves and others regarding mental health and suicide prevention is incredibly beneficial to them and our community.
