Clint Malarchuk takes action to advocate for mental health using its expertise, experience and a bestselling book to help and save lives with mental illness

NEW YORK, September 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — As the stigma of mental illness continues to challenge the world, Clint Malarchuk is a man who goes above and beyond to raise awareness about mental health and reach out to those who are suffering. A former NHL goaltender who nearly lost his life after a freak accident on the ice, he involuntarily suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, which led to a suicide attempt two decades later. As he experienced another chance, Clint looked back on the difficult challenges he had to overcome and used his learnings to help others find strength in adversity.

“Don’t pull the trigger like I did,” Clint said of his battle with PTSD, depression, anxiety and addiction. He worked alongside the journalist Dan Robson and published a book in America, The Crazy Game: How I Survived The Fold and Beyond and published the same book in Canada but with a different title, A Matter of Inches: How I Survived the Fold and Beyond, illustrating his struggle with anxiety, depression and alcoholism. “People need to realize that they are not alone and that they can improve themselves by seeking help. There is no guilt or shame in asking for help,” Clint revealed. Since the pandemic began, Clint has seen more people struggling with mental health issues and stressed that she needs attention more than ever.

Despite being an accomplished man with many accolades, he wasn’t afraid to be honest about his struggles. “I have been in the darkest black, suffering in silence. I want people to know that they are not alone. However, getting better can be difficult because of the stigma. We need to break and change this state of mind.” Clint has spoken at various events to inspire and raise awareness about mental health. Currently working with a non-profit organization to help veterans and athletes with mental health and addiction issues; his passion for helping others continues to touch and change thousands of lives for the better.
