Imagine being a goaltender for the NHL while suffering with high anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and depression, and then having your career nearly cut short by a serious injury on the ice.
Join us on Monday, October 3rd at 7 pm for an evening of hope and inspiration, told with both humour and raw emotion as Clint Malarchuk, former NHL Goaltender and author of The Crazy Game: How I Survived in the Crease and Beyond, will be sharing the experience of his recovery from mental illness and alcohol addiction after facing tremendous challenges both on and off the ice.
Our Health Sciences Centre is a sponsor of Clint’s presentation, hosted by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), as part of Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 3 – 8, 2016). Open to the community, this event combines education and entertainment while raising awareness for issues surrounding mental health and addictions.
The event takes place at the Victoria Inn and tickets can be purchased by calling CMHA at 345-5564 or online at clintmalarchuk.eventbrite.ca.
