From Stopping Pucks to Stopping the Stigma with Kelly Hrudey
Kelly Hrudey is a former NHL goaltender, a current analyst for Sportsnet’s Hockey Night in Canada and a regional broadcaster for the Calgary Flames. He is also a mental health advocate and an Anxiety Canada Champion.
In this episode of #OurAnxietyStories Kelly shares how his journey with anxiety began with his daughter, Kaitlin, who was diagnosed with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in 2005. After learning about anxiety while supporting his daughter, he recognized that he had similar experiences as well, and sought out support from a mental health professional. Today, Kelly and Kaitlin continue to navigate anxiety and raise awareness as mental health advocates via various initiatives such as Kaitlin’s clothing brand “More Good Days”.
