Football Suicide Secrets

Sep 23, 13 Football Suicide Secrets

 

Excellent documentary of Chairman of the Professional Footballers Association Clarke Carlisle who  investigates depression in the sport and the impact of stress off the field, reflecting on the death in 2011 of Wales`s then manager Gary Speed. The ex – Northampton Town defender talks to the Speed Family, young players and other managers in a bid to find out why footballers struggle to ask for help when suffering from depression, and ask whether mental illness remains a taboo in the professional game.

Please follow the link to this excellent and very insightful documentary of the detailed mental battles that went on in Clarke`s head.
