Quesnel Minor Hockey Product To Be Featured On Hockey Day In Canada

A young man from Quesnel will be making an appearance on Hockey Day In Canada !

And for something a lot more important than hockey.

Myles Mattila and his Kelowna Chiefs teammates will be interviewed early next month on what they are doing for the mental health of youth and young adults.

Mattila says they have special mental health jerseys for three games this year…

“The very first one we raised funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association. Later on in the season we’re going to be looking at possibly raising funds for other groups, maybe some local groups in Kelowna, so maybe Kelowna Foundry for example.”

Mattila says the Kelowna Foundry is a one stop shop for youth to be able to go in and get the resources they need to deal with a mental health issue.

Mattila is also an ambassador for mindcheck.ca…

“If people just want to learn about mental health i think mindcheck.ca is a great resource because you can actually go on there, take a few quizzes that are confidential if you just want to learn about mental health because mindcheck.ca is not so much of getting help right away, but just kind of letting people know what they might be going through.”

Hockey Day in Canada will take place on January 20th.
