Trevor Linden Gets Real About Mental Health and Not Screwing Up Your Kid
Play • 52 min

20 year NHL Veteran, former NHLPA President, and current Business Owner Trevor Linden talks about fatherhood, mental and emotional health, and giving kids what they need – not what we want, as fathers. This conversation touches on important themes every dad can relate to, but in a way you can also learn from. Trevor’s passion for health and being a great dad come through.

He talks about the depression his father experienced while he was a child. Then he addresses the pressure dads might feel or create in their kids when they push too hard. We also explore the truth that you learn a lot about yourself through your child, but that can often be hard when you see things you don’t like.

From start to finish, this conversation gives dads tools and advice they can apply to their fatherhood journey.
