"Mental health issues are hidden inside homes and inside heads. Admitting you are struggling to your mates, family or doctor, is a huge step especially for men because we are meant to be hard, tough, the breadwinner perhaps, the rock.
And if you do speak up ? Snap out of it is the glib answer. It makes me sick.
Anyone can suffer – rich or poor, black or white, old or young. I’ve seen mental illness close up. Friends fighting a terrible battle with themselves, with precious little help available to them.
That’s why I am proud to be an ambassador of the
BIG BALLS FOUNDATION.
It should not take Big Balls to talk about mental health but it does. Lets help change peoples attitudes and understanding of mental issues.
Now , I will drink to that!"
