Videos will feature Guelph Storm players talking about the importance of mental health and there will be public service announcements about mental health and CMHA Waterloo Wellington.

There will be mental health signs for fans to write on and show in unison at a designated stoppages in play.

The event is part of the team’s ongoing partnership with CMHA Waterloo Wellington and its Talk Today program.
