Mental health is a big issue.

Quote:
"I am an addict that was diagnosed as bipolar and ADHD with PTSD and trauma," Lehner said. "I had never had a sober season of hockey my entire career. With those manic swings, I could see the pattern. When I was hypomanic and in a good mood, I was a solid goalie. The depressive state, not so much." He is sober now and thankful to everyone who helped him along the way. Lehner also appreciates the opportunity to continue his career and start a new chapter with the New York Islanders

He got a big ovation the yesterday in their pre-season game. Fans are taking a real liking to him after he did that article. So many people live with these issues and either don't know or hide it. Big of him to come out and make it public to try to help others.
