CMHA Kelowna’s partnership with the West Kelowna Warriors continued last week with volunteers attending a game to cheer on the team and sell pucks to raise funds for mental health programs and services. The partnership is part of the BC-wide #TalkToday initiative encouraging athletes to be more aware of their mental health and seek help when they have concerns.
Previously, our community education facilitators have provided presentations to players and families (including billet families) on mental health, stigma reduction, and how to have those conversations with each other. We look forward to future educational opportunities with the West Kelowna Warriors.
