IGM Founder's Story
Bob Wilkie grew up in Calgary with the dream of becoming an NHL hockey player. However, he faced great adversity through his journey.
Bullying, extreme power differentials, unrealistic expectations, being traded, the trauma of a team bus accident all contributed to his downward spiral. As a result, Bob suffered from anxiety attacks, depression, and addiction.
Unfortunately, because there was little or no help at that time, he suffered on his own in silence. He was afraid to speak about his struggles for fear of being ostracized. The lack of support services and his fear of reaching out cost him his career as an elite NHL hockey player.
After retirement, Bob created I Got Mind to provide a safe place where athletes, their families and their coaches can become educated on the importance of mental wellness. It has become his passion.
I Got Mind was established 15 years ago to help athletes, their parents and coaches find the solutions they need to increase awareness, eliminate ignorance, build resilience, and increase performance.
Bob is proud to say that thousands of athletes and their families have been helped as a result of the I Got Mind programs.
The company has won awards and has travelled the country with one purpose, to enhance the mental wellness of all participates through education and awareness.
