Hockey Talks - May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Hockey Talks is a program that was inspired by Rick Rypien, former Vancouver Canucks forward, who tragically lost his battle with mental health issues in 2011. Today, clubs across the league participate by sharing resources, stories & breaking the stigma about mental health issues. Break the Ice, a mental wellness movement for each and every Penguins fan, was established by the Penguins Foundation & Citrone 33 in 2020. This season, through #BreakTheIce, fans are challenged to connect with one another & to take positive action regarding their own mental wellness + that of their loved ones.
