The Vancouver Canucks released a video featuring forward Tyler Motte and his struggles with anxiety and depression and… well it’s truly a stirring piece that deserves to be seen.
Check it out:
Chills. While personally I may not be affected by depression or anxiety, the truth is that there are a LOT of people in our day to day lives who are. Health care professional estimate that as many 25% of the population is dealing with depression and anxiety.
As a professional athlete, I can’t imagine the scrutiny that Motte is under and the stress that that must cause him. Kudos to him on trying to erase the stigma of mental health issues.
