Mental health, sports and society writer.

English Language graduate turned writer with a strong interest in the link between sports and mental health. I like to delve into specific language uses and am writing a book/memoir (ahhh) about trauma, illness and its link to mental health.

When the significance of the game is brought to the fore, we become humans again. Football, as a form of escapism, is perfect way for fans to distract themselves from the realities of life, but the necessity to switch is something that throws us off guard.
