Face Off for Mental Health
Submitted By Darryl Terpstra on Friday, November 13, 2020
Nov 11, PEMAA participated in a virtual meeting with other Associations, to talk about Face Off For Mental Health. 

We know things look very different this year, with the return to play restrictions and facility guidelines discouraging the distribution of paper resources and minimal access to the rink make it extra challenging to launch our usual rowdy campaign.... However, we know it is perhaps even more important than ever, to consistently acknowledge mental wellness, for our players, parents and volunteers!

Each association agreed to continue prioritizing wellness and sharing messaging and virtual resources on an ongoing basis this season. We made some exciting plans for the coming months including an opportunity for folks to participate virtually in a mental health 101 session, with a question and answer period. 

In the meantime, this weekend, every player/benchstaff will be given a face covering with the FOFMH logo as a visual reminder the rink is a safe place...

In spite of our current challenges, it was unanimous, returning to the rink has been a step in the right direction for our players! The red cheeks and big smiles are indisputable evidence; physical activity, time spent with peers and positive role models is time well spent! If you have any ideas/input around ways to reach our players and families to share wellness messaging/resources, please reach out ([email protected])
