The Premier League is taking the mental health of its young men, who play the game at the highest level, increasingly seriously. They are being supported by IfUCareShare, and its founder, Dean Smith (see photo) helps young players to talk about how they are feeling and start to recognise the signs of anxiety and depression and ask for help when they need it.
The Matthew Elvidge Trust works closely with IfUCareShare and you can read more about their amazing work with all the Premier League academies in this recent BBC Article.
