Prince William: Men talk about football but are silent about mental health | ITV News

Prince William was at Wembley Stadium today to launch the latest strand of his Heads Up mental health campaign.
The initiative has football at the heart of it as the Duke of Cambridge said he wanted to use the sport to encourage more men to discuss depression.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 and Prince William said he hoped the initiative would show how support from a team, at any level, can encourage players to open up.
Football did prove to be a lifeline for James Casling, a player for Queen’s Park Rangers mental health team.
His father killed himself on his 15th birthday and James has attempted suicide several times. He told ITV News, playing football has changed his life for the better.
