Rick Rypien & Mental Health
Rick Rypien was born on this day in 1984. Rypien was a hockey player and a fan favourite during his time with the Vancouver Canucks. Sadly, he took his own life in 2011. Rypien suffered from the devastating effects of depression and other mental health issues.
Former team-mates, friends and family have honoured the memory of Rick Rypien in many ways, not least through the connection to Foundry (formerly known as Mindcheck.)
To find out more about mental health and some of the resources available to those who need help with mental health, visit the Foundry.

World Press Freedom Day
May 3rd is World Press Freedom Day, as established by UNESCO / United Nations. The freedom of the press is essential to the establishment and health of democracy. In our world of social media, misinformation, disinformation, fake news and conspiracy theories, we need a free, independent, professional and ethical press more than ever.
As the [COVID-19] pandemic spreads, it has also given rise to a second pandemic of misinformation, from harmful health advice to wild conspiracy theories. The press provides the antidote: verified, scientific, fact-based news and analysis.
