Rypien's Legacy Continues On

16 posts in this topic

This is great. Mental health issues are really serious. It's great to see the Canadian hockey clubs banding together to raise awareness and get people actively engaged in mental health issues. There can never too much support for those in need, this is a step in the right direction.

Canucks will also be wearing "Hockey Talks" t-shirts after game and practice. Let's hope they sell these to the fans, I was so dissapointed to never get my hands on the RYP shirt, hope they bring them back.

This country is seriously lacking in resources for those suffering from forms of mental illness. The more that awareness is raised and outlets are provided, the more likely that the issues will start to be addressed and additional funding and programs made available.

Fully support any sort of discussion that brings this into the forefront.

Won't go into it again, but am walking the path with someone battling severe anxiety and depression. It is serious and not a passing mood that one can always just get over or control. Young people are afflicted, not just their parents (they seem to face a stigma with an "oh, what do you have to worry about?" mentality). Good job NHL but, mostly, Canucks. Ryp, your legacy lives on beyond your courage on the ice...it's tragic that this horrible condition claimed you, but we'll continue to remember that it was not in vain.
