Pledge to take an active role in helping those with mental health and substance use-related challenges for a chance to win a Canucks prize package! You can win four tickets to the Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers on January 16, 2019! The game will be the Canucks seventh annual HockeyTalks event, dedicated to raising awareness of mental health.
The reality is, many people live with these problems in silence.
Often there are signs. A close friend seems less social than usual. Maybe they’re having difficulty with daily tasks and activities. Or they’re spending more time using alcohol or drugs. And still, some may not show any signs they’re struggling at all.
That’s why we’re partnering with the B.C. Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions on the #YouCanTalkToMe contest – to start conversations and show that no one needs to face mental health and substance use-related challenges alone. By talking, we can let people know we’re there for them, supporting them to get the help they need and reducing the stigma that can stop them from reaching out.
Take a pledge and let people know that when it comes to mental health and substance use, it’s important to talk.
Hear more on why it’s important to talk about mental health from Kirk McLean and Jake Virtanen.
