Highlights from An Evening of Conversation with Clint Malarchuk
By Sean Mayer
As he fought back tears, former National Hockey League goalie Clint Malarchuk told a rapt audience what led him to point a gun under his chin and pull the trigger in 2009.
“I didn’t want to kill myself,” Malarchuk said of the suicide attempt on his Nevada ranch. “I wanted to get rid of the hamster or mouse or rat that was running around inside my head.”
On Thursday, October 26th, The Mental Health Association of Westchester welcomed former NHL all-star goalie Clint Malarchuk and his wife Joanie for a riveting and unforgettable evening of conversation.

Last year, with the help of friends like you, we delivered gifts to more than 350 men, women, children and teenagers we serve. For most, these are the only gifts they receive during the holidays.
Your gift is more than just a fun toy or a warm jacket - it is a message that says "I care about you, and you are a cherished member of our community."

On Tuesday, June 22nd, we celebrated the incredible men and women who devote their time as Court Appointed Special Advocates, Visit Hosts and Sterling Community Center volunteers with a special appreciation luncheon.

Thank you to all of our volunteers - your commitment and care make all the difference in each life you touch!
