“Change our stigma towards mental illness”
“Maybe somebody won’t feel like they’re the only one going through a dark time.”
Clint Malarchuk, an experienced NHL goalie, faced death twice: at the end of a skate blade and later in a suicide attempt. After working through alcoholism, high anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and depression, he now finds purpose in opening the dialogue about mental illness. Having fallen from the top of his career into a darkness he almost didn’t escape, Clint wants to change our stigma towards mental illness and to be a light or hope for those who may suffer as well.
