U16's Go Green for Face Off for Mental Health
Sarnia, ON - The ALLIANCE Hockey U16 AAA teams went green on Saturday, December 4th in recognition of the Face Off for Mental Health.  As part of the weekend Face Off games, the teams used green tape for their sticks and sported FOFMH helmet stickers in an effort to increase the awareness surrounding mental health and the spirit of wellness around the game.

This past year, the St. Clair Child & Youth Services launched Face Off for Mental Health, an exciting campaign aimed at raising awareness about mental health through local hockey associations.  Through hockey, their goal is to make arenas and dressing rooms a safe place to talk about mental health. 

St. Clair Child & Youth Services have partnered with local area hockey associations to raise the profile of mental health issues for children and youth, including the Lambton Sting Jr. AAA Hockey Club and the Sarnia Hockey Association.

Information about local resources was made available in arenas and over 2600 registered players were provided with a hockey puck with helpline information.  Additionally, each association made it mandatory to for bench staff to participate in a mental health education workshop.  

Our sincere thanks to Lambton U16AAA Coach Tom Babcock, the Lambton Jr Sting AAA Hockey Club, the Sarnia Sting, the St. Clair Child & Youth Services and the ALLIANCE Hockey U16AAA teams for coordinating and participating in the weekend events.
