Mental Health Awareness Session - Nov. 6, 2023

Hello BDMHA Families,
On November 6th BDMHA is proud to be offering a mental health awareness session.  The session will be led by former professional hockey player and goaltender Ben Meisner.
Ben is a German / Canadian citizen who played his minor hockey in Nova Scotia before moving on to play Prep School hockey for 3 years, followed by an exceptional NCAA Division 1 career where he received a full scholarship and set 12 school records, 2 conference records and 2 all time NCAA Division 1 records.  Following college, Ben played professional hockey in North America and Germany for 13 years, capping off his career with a DEL2 championship last year. Ben now works with the Tasa Minor Hockey Association and serves as an NHL scout.

In addition to all of those accomplishments, Ben wrote an article that was posted in the Players Tribune entitled 'I'm Not Connor McDavid'.  In this article Ben discusses his path and challenges through his minor hockey, school and professional careers.
We're very excited to have Ben join us to speak with our players and parents.  This is open to both our players, coaches and parents.  Everyone is encouraged to attend if possible.
