The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association is proud to have the team from the Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan participate in the 2023 MAHA Summer Meetings! Leaders from the program will deliver a powerful presentation on its be nice. team program, empowering coaches and trainers with the knowledge and confidence to take action when faced with a mental health concern.
Student-athletes experience challenges to their mental health. It’s as simple as that. This is a national conversation, but the way that we can effect change is to bring the conversation locally and to our teams. be nice. is an easy tool to use and understand for all ages and backgrounds.
Benefits of becoming a be nice. Team:
