Town Mark World Mental Health Day
Thursday, 10th Oct 2019 15:14
Town have marked World Mental Health Day by releasing a video of skipper Luke Chambers, midfielder Flynn Downes and Blues supporter Jordan Hockold speaking to Suffolk Mind chief executive Jon Neal about their experiences with mental health.
Neal visited Portman Road last week for the conversation ahead of WMHD, which is held on October 10th annually.
Earlier this season Downes spoke about how he struggled with the mental aspect of football when he first broke into the senior side.
"My advice would be to talk," Downes said. "I didn't do that at the start but when I did it really helped.”

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
