It has been reported in recent days that the Everton player Aaron Lennon is suffering with mental health issues. This will shock some people as Aaron is a physically fit young man who is doing his dream job as a professional footballer. However, 1 in 4 people suffer with mental health problems during their life. Nobody really knows what issues people are dealing with behind closed doors.
I have seen both family and friends suffer with mental illness. I would recommend that if anybody out there is struggling with their every day life, and/or knows someone that is suffering, they seek help as soon as possible. Talk to a friend or your GP as somebody is always there to help. Don’t be afraid to speak out.

Get well soon Aaron and all others that are suffering with mental health issues.
