Face Off for Mental Health



St. Clair Child & Youth Services is proud of the fact we served enough infants, children, youth, and families last year (over 6000) to more than fill the Progressive Auto Sales Arena, yet we face an ongoing challenge against stigma and lack of awareness about mental health. 

St. Clair Child & Youth Services, Lead Agency for Children’s Mental Health in Lambton County is pleased to partner with local hockey associations to raise the profile of mental health issues for children and youth.  Current partners include:  Point Edward Minor Hockey Association, Sarnia Hockey Association, Lambton Sting Jr. AAA Hockey Club, Petrolia Minor Hockey Association, Lambton Attack Girls Hockey, Mooretown Minor Hockey Association, Lambton Shores Minor Hockey Association, East Lambton Minor Hockey Association, Sarnia Girls Hockey, and the Sarnia Legionnaires.  

Is your hockey association interested in participating in the campaign?  Contact Craig McKenzie, mckecra [at] stclairchild [dot] ca 

This past year, we launched Face Off for Mental Health, an exciting campaign aimed at raising awareness about mental health through local hockey associations.  Through hockey, our goal is to make arenas and dressing rooms a safe place to talk about mental health.  Local hockey associations each hosted a Face Off for Mental Health Awareness Weekend, where teams from mite to midget taped their sticks green in support of mental health.  This past year information about local resources was 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.
