The Spitfires and Canadian Mental Health Association Windsor-Essex are teaming up to raise awareness about the importance of mental health during Thursday night’s Spits home game.

The game will feature a CMHA run kiosk so fans can learn more about mental health, videos featuring Spitfire players talking about the importance of mental health and P.A. announcements about mental health during stoppages in play.

The awareness campaign is part of the ongoing commitment by the Spitfires and CMHA Windsor-Essex to implement Talk Today, presented by Teachers Life.

A key piece of the Talk Today program has been to educate players about mental health and suicide prevention.

Every team has received mental health training specific to suicide prevention. Each team is also now linked to a CMHA mental health coach, who provides support and mental health resources to individuals in need.
