MindRight for Athletes Society

MindRight focuses on helping promote wellness and positive living for young people through increasing community awareness and making use of existing mental health resources.

Myles Mattila, currently a junior hockey player with the Kelowna Chiefs and business student at UBC Okanagan, developed MindRight after being inspired by the story of late Vancouver Canuck Rick Rypien. Myles thought of a friend who struggled with his mental health and developed MindRight to educate athletes, coaches, parents, and supporters about their mental health and the health of others.
