Two-time Grey Cup champion talks mental health in the North

Two-time Grey Cup champion and Bell Let’s Talk ambassador Shea Emry spoke about his struggles with depression as part of mental illness awareness week in Yellowknife Thursday.

“I’m a 230 lb professional football player who, you know, looks like a lumberjack that’s up there talking about dealing with depression and what it’s like to go through issues internally,” Emry told Moose FM.

“When people hear that, they see a safe space to potentially deal with their own issues.”

You can hear Moose FM’s interview with Emry about the importance of mental health here.
