The passing of Rick Rypien hit a lot of us hard this summer. In a dark time like that, it’s tough to believe that any good can come from losing someone you care about. Hopefully some can.

The reality is, there are a lot people out there who need help, and the website “mindcheck.ca” has been set up to help those who struggle through mental difficulties, aiming to provide them with some relief.

Thanks to Jets season-ticket holder @HailsJA for the tip. Please pass this on. As she put it “may save a life.”

She also pointed out that Bieksa lends his voice to share his experiences with Rypien, who suffered from depression, here.
