STUART ELLIS-MEYERS

THEO FLEURY

mental health speakers theo fleury

Former NHLer Walked away from hockey in 2003, leaving millions of dollars on the table and thousands of fans asking why?

In his book Playing with Fire he candidly answers why and outlines his mental health and addiction struggles. He describes a history of emotional distance/neglect from his parents when he was a child, and sexual abuse as a teen by a coach and supposed mentor.

Fleury details the subsequent years of substance use, gambling, and other addictions which facilitated his being able to tolerate the self-loathing he felt for not standing up to the abuse and the way the abuse affected him psychologically.

Today Theo is a leading voice in relational trauma and believes that by educating the public about the prevalence and signs of this type of emotional injury, we can increase awareness and reach more people who are in pain and in need of help.

It’s a lot of strain on people, especially those on intake in the emergency department.  I actively fight for my sanity and my health every day. You have to take time to eat. You have to take time to go to the bathroom. Sometimes it feels like it’s not possible because of what you’re doing. It’s a real departure from being an athlete when I was so worried about my health, my fitness, all the time.”
