BUILDEX Construction Leaders Breakfast

Presented by ICBA Alberta and Calgary Construction Association

Wednesday, October 18, 8:00am – 9:30am

Tremendous advances have been made in protecting the construction industry workforce’s physical safety, however mental health remains one of the greatest risks to those on the job site and in the office. Higher incidences of mental health disorders and suicide are well documented in the construction industry, and although change is underway, improvements remain. For contractors and business owners, strong ethical and business cases exist to ensure the well-being of their employees; enabling them to realize their potential, to cope with the stresses of everyday life, and to work productively for their businesses.

Keynote Address

Keynote address from Clint Malarchuk

Former NHL Goaltender | Mental Health Advocate  

The Crazy Game: How I Survived in the Crease and Beyond  

No job in the world of sports is as intimidating, exhilarating, and stressful as that of a hockey goaltender. Now imagine doing that job while suffering from high anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and depression, and having your career nearly cut short when a skate sliced across your neck. 

Clint Malarchuk, the famed former NHL goaltender, shares his extraordinary and heart wrenching life story — which includes his long battle with alcoholism and almost ending his life by a gunshot to the head — in his relentless effort to help end the stigma of mental illness and to help others who may suffer as well.
