Salve Regina men’s hockey to host Mental Health Awareness Night

The Salve Regina University men’s ice hockey team will host their first Mental Health Awareness Night on Saturday, December 4th at 7 p.m. at St. George’s School Hockey Arena.

Proceeds from the match against Suffolk will benefit the Newport Mental Health and Movember Foundation.

“I decided to organize this as a way to raise awareness among my teammates, Salve students and the community,” said event organizer and senior psychology student Anthony Azano, who added that he and his team would be giving out boom sticks to the first 100 people.

Members of the Seahawks are not without their own personal experiences. The elder George Synnott recounted his recent mental health challenge.

I haven’t left my bedroom for about four months. It’s much better now. Sennot said, referring to the more than 60% of 18- to 24-year-olds who have reported feelings of anxiety or depression in the United States during the pandemic. “It is important that we all talk. This is our message as a team.”

The team will split the $5 entry fee, money raised through the sale of Seahawks hockey jerseys and several raffle items between Newport Mental Health, a community mental health center that provides behavioral health services regardless of income or insurance level, and Movember.
