Face Off For Mental Health .... MTMHA Is Going GREEN!
Submitted By Director of Communications on Tuesday, November 7, 2017
MTMHA and the Mooretown Lady Flags Girls Hockey Association has teamed up with St.Clair Child & Youth Services in support of the "Face Off For Mental Health" campaign among hockey associations across Sarnia-Lambton.   We are participating in this important county wide campaign to raise awareness of mental health issues for children and youth. 

It is a fact that 1 in 5 children are struggling with a mental health issue.  That is one player on every line, approximately 3-4 players on any given team from Instructional to Juvenile. 

So here is what we are going to do .....



We have chosen this weekend, November 11th & 12th to wrap our sticks in green in support of Mental Health Awareness at our arena & in our community. This will serve as a visual reminder for our players, coaches, fans and executive.  It will help raise awareness and stomp the stigma surrounding mental health.   

All teams across the organization from Instructional to Juvenile including the Lady Flags will be asked to take part in this. The green tape will be supplied by MTMHA and distributed to coaches this week. St.Clair Child & Youth Services will be providing players with green helmet stickers that will be available this weekend as well.
 
MTMHA and the Mooretown Lady Flags will be donating all gate fees, 50/50 profits (thank you Hockey Moms) & any donations taken in this weekend as well. The Flags will be donating their 50/50 profits from Saturday's game also. On top of this, MTMHA will be matching whatever the total is from the weekend. The association will present this donation to St.Clair Child & Youth Services later this month.

In the coming months our bench staff will be invited to participate in an information session which will focus on ensuring volunteers have the appropriate information to support players and direct them (and their family members) to the appropriate resource in our community. We have added a section to our "Risk Management" tab where you can access local resources.

This weekend we will have a table of resources and information from St.Clair Child & Youth Services set up in the lobby.  Thank you to St. Clair Child and Youth Services for inviting us to participate in such an exciting movement!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Kaylen Burgess

Thank you in advance for your participation in this event! Let's get the conversation started!
