This year, the Western Hockey League (WHL) and RE/MAX of Western Canada have teamed up to support local Canadian Mental Health Associations (CMHAs) in each Canadian WHL city. Through the Goals for Mental Health campaign, RE/MAX is donating $15 for every goal scored by WHL clubs in 17 Western Canadian markets.
We’re also challenging fans to help support mental health in their region. By donating through this fan challenge page, you’ll be adding to RE/MAX’s support and helping CMHAs contribute to mental health resources in every Canadian WHL community.
Since January 2017, the WHL has worked with local CMHAs to deliver the Talk Today program to all 22 WHL markets. The Talk Today program includes an education component called safeTALK for players, providing mental health training specific to suicide awareness. Each team is also linked to a CMHA Mental Health Coach, who provides support and resources to players, coaches and staff in need.
