APMHA - Brian Renaud
Hello PHA Families:

It is with a heavy heart that I pass along this information. On June 22nd, a member of Ajax-Pickering Minor Hockey Association died by suicide. Brian Renaud was 17.

Below is a link to a Go Fund Me account established to assist the family with expenses while they work through this situation.



Many youth, parents and community members suffer in silence while dealing with mental health challenges. Even in 2023, there remains a stigma surrounding mental health. As a result, many pretend they’re doing well so they don’t worry others or draw attention to themselves.


Please take a moment to check-in with your child, show them some love/ support, and remind them that supports are available for them when needed. This support may be from a parent, a sibling, a coach, a friend, a teammate, a community person (eg. teacher, therapist), or others. Even if they chose not to speak with you, encourage them to talk to someone if they are struggling. It may save a life.
