Wolf Pack Support Services utilizes Professional Ambassadors to help promote our message. Our Ambassadors promote our message to #EndTheStigma around Mental Health. One does not need to be in the Police, Fire, EMS, Corrections, Dispatch or Healthcare industries to understand that these individuals work in high stress environments. This stress is nothing to be ashamed of and we are working to end the negative stigmas surrounding Mental Health and Mental Health Awareness. We are greatly thankful to have all these amazing individuals donate their time and energy in support of Wolf Pack Support Services.

A Matter of Inches, By Clint Malarchuk
No job in the world of sports is as intimidating, exhilarating, and stress-ridden as that of a hockey goaltender. Clint Malarchuk did that job while suffering high anxiety, depression, and obsessive compulsive disorder and had his career nearly literally cut short by a skate across his neck, to date the most gruesome injury hockey has ever seen. This autobiography takes readers deep into the troubled mind of Malarchuk, the former NHL goaltender for the Quebec Nordiques, the Washington Capitals, and the Buffalo Sabres. When his carotid artery was slashed during a collision in the crease, Malarchuk nearly died on the ice. Forever changed, he struggled deeply with depression and a dependence on alcohol, which nearly cost him his life and left a bullet in his head. In A Matter of Inches, Malarchuk reflects on his past as he looks forward to the future, every day grateful to have cheated death—twice.
