As a result, two-thirds of those suffering from mental illness are too afraid to reach out for help. On January 20, we encourage our fans to join the conversation about mental health and help fight the stigma of mental illness.
The Steelheads are proud to announce that the club will be donating $5 from every Platinum level ticket sold for the game on January 20 to the Canadian Mental Health Association – Dufferin Peel.
