The campaign is targeted to educate players and fans about mental health and suicide prevention.
Each team in the OHL is put with a mental health coach who provides support to players in need.
A CMHA-run kiosk will be setup so fans can learn more about mental health, videos featuring Rangers players talking about the importance of mental health and public address announcements will be made as well.
Megan Brady is a communications specialist at the Waterloo Wellington Branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association and says it’s to help start the conversation.
“Fans can come up to us and speak to us about mental health,” says Brady, “they can also learn more about the training and workshops that we offer in the community as well.”
It’s the third straight year that the Rangers are joining forces with the Canadian Mental Health Association for this event.
The Rangers take on the Ice Dogs tonight. Go Rangers Go!
