Sunset Sip Recap: Jim Fox talks mental health and NHL lockout

Last summer we brought you the story of Jim Fox and his work with the Guidance Center, a group committed to helping children and young adults with various mental health issues.  Raising awareness of the topic was also extremely timely, considering the number of recent deaths that had occurred in the NHL.  At least in a few of those cases, the players involved possibly suffered from their own demons and could have used somebody to talk with.

“We’re seeing mental health issues being discussed now in the NHL,” Fox commented back then. “That’s always been an interest of mine, the mental part of the game – whether it’s the positives or the negatives – and the struggles that everyone has.”

Last night, Fox held his second annual Sunset Sip event to help out the local organization. MayorsManor was once again on hand and in the video below the former Kings player and long-time broadcaster talks about some of the changes that have gone on within the Guidance Center in the last year, their ongoing efforts to help people…and he even mixes in a little hockey talk at the end, focusing on the current lockout and the resulting fallout.

Since 1946, The Guidance Center has been providing comprehensive mental health treatment to extremely disadvantaged children and their families – including more than 2,000 each year. Please take a few minutes to check out their website and see what they’re all about.
