Depression Stigma Needs to Stop

Rick Rypien was a good Canadian guy who played hockey the way Canadians love and did so with a great heart. Coming off of a bad season where he only played 9 games for the Canucks and was suspended for attempting to fight a fan as he walked to the locker room, Rypien was looking to have a new start in Winnipeg. Unfortunately for him and everyone that knew him this fresh start will never happen. Rypien was found dead at his family home in Alberta, the RCMP ruled the death non-suspicious and sudden. As information has been slowly released about Rypien’s life it was revealed that he had been battling with Depression for many years and that this depression may have had a role in his death.
