The Boston Bruins made a surprising announcement about their upcoming Mental Health Awareness Night, sponsored by Mass General Brigham, scheduled for Thursday, December 7, during their home game versus the Buffalo Sabres at 7 p.m. at TD Garden.

As part of this occasion, the Bruins will recognize Dr. Nathaniel Van Kirk as the Community All-Star, presented by Massachusetts State Lottery. Dr. Van Kirk, who serves as the Director of Psychological Services at the OCD Institute at McLean Hospital, is engaged in research aimed at improving treatment for severe OCD and associated disorders. Representatives from McLean Hospital and the Benson-Henry Institute (BHI) of Massachusetts General Hospital will be present on the concourse behind Loge 21 throughout the game. BHI specializes in integrating mind-body medicine into conventional healthcare through thorough, evidence-based research. The Boston Bruins Foundation 50/50 Raffle, presented by DraftKings, will contribute to McLean Hospital's mission.
McLean Hospital, a non-profit psychiatric hospital under Mass General Brigham, is committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. Fans have the opportunity to participate in the 50/50 Raffle until the commencement of the third period at BostonBruins.com/5050.
In another initiative, on Wednesday, December 20, the Bruins will organize a panel discussion on Stress and Burnout at Warrior Ice Arena (90 Guest Street, Brighton, MA 02135) at 6:30 p.m., moderated by Sophia Jurksztowicz. The panel will include Head Coach Jim Montgomery and mental health professionals Fairlee C. Fabrett, Ph.D. (McLean Hospital), Susan M. Szulewski, M.D. (McLean Hospital), and Gregory Fricchione, M.D. (Mass General Hospital). Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
