McFadden's Movement and KMHA
Submitted By KMHA on Thursday, November 26, 2020
      KMHA is excited to announce that we are teaming up with Garrett McFadden and McFadden’s Movement, a nonprofit organization that strives to change, help and develop initiatives among young athletes to offer assistance with mental health issues.  

      Garrett played most of his minor hockey in Kincardine, winning an All Ontario championship as well as an OFSAA gold medal before moving on to play for the Grey Bruce Highlanders, Team Ontario and then 5 years for the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League, his last two as team captain. In the 2015-16 and 2016-17 OHL seasons, he was named the OHL Humanitarian of the year as well as being named the Canadian Hockey League Humanitarian of the year in 2016. He currently plays for the University of Acadia Axemen located just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia.               
       Drawing on his own challenges, while also directly affected by the loss of a close family, McFadden's Movement was created in 2016 and with it Garrett helps to create a connection with minor athletes and youth by highlighting not only the pressures of sport, but also the significance of talking about mental health when it comes to the day-to-day struggles that anyone and everyone can face in hopes of changing the stigma.
     
Mcfaddens Movement is an organization that KMHA families can use to help ensure kids know that the pressures they are going through are normal and that there's people out there they can talk to. If you have a player on your team or a child in your family that needs some help dealing with the pressures associated with sports as they become more competitive please check out the McFadden’s Movement webpage for information and resources on tools available to make sure that our most valuable resources, our children, have a place to go and someone to turn too when they need it the most.
     Information on McFadden's Movement as well as Wes for Youth Online can be found under the Health and Wellness tab on our KMHA website.
