Sooke Minor Hockey brings awareness for mental health

Teams mark Buddy Check for Jesse

The issue of mental health was in the spotlight recently when Sooke Minor Hockey Association teams took part in Buddy Check for Jesse.

B.C. Hockey partnered with Buddy Check for Jesse to create awareness for mental health.

Buddy Check for Jesse was created by Dr. Stu Gershman, who tragically lost his son Jesse to suicide Oct. 29, 2014.

The goal of Buddy Check For Jesse is to honour Jesse’s memory by recognizing and normalizing how common and pervasive it is for our youth to experience struggles with coping on a daily basis.

Buddy Check For Jesse, launched in October 2018, provides green tape – the colour for mental health – to hundreds of teams throughout B.C. for players to tape their sticks in support of mental health.
