SHA to Participate in Face Off For Mental Health
Submitted By Amanda Madere on Saturday, November 3, 2018
One in five children and youth will experience a mental health problem.  That’s equivalent to ONE player on each line during a hockey game.   St. Clair Child & Youth Services, Lead Agency for Children’s Mental Health in Lambton County is pleased to partner with local hockey associations to raise the profile of mental health issues for children and youth.


Current partners include Point Edward Minor Hockey Association, Mooretown, Petrolia, Lambton Shores, East Lambton, Sarnia Girls and Sarnia Hockey Association.

The concept of bringing together hockey and the local children’s mental health agency started because of a coach who sought out information about mental health to better support the players on his team.  Local hockey associations will be recognizing the Face Off for Mental Health Campaign with their own mental health awareness weekends throughout the month of November.  Home teams will show their support with their sticks wrapped in green tape symbolizing the green ribbon for mental health awareness. 

The weekend of November 17 and 18 will showcase 66 Sarnia teams, at all Sarnia rinks, with their sticks taped in unity to support mental health awareness.  Please come out and show your support for this very important event.
