 Kane Hemmings
Topic Originator: Stanza

Excellent article in The Guardian today about Kane Hemmings and his struggles with mental health problems.
Well timed, with the recent initiatives in this area by DAFC through Mental Health Ambassador Eddie Martin.

A very open and honest interview. Hopefully the work we have been doing at Dunfermline Athletic FC and our partnership with Back Onside means no other players will suffer in silence

That’s a horrendous read, poor guy. Then you realise that he definitely isn’t alone. Footballers at his level don’t earn shedloads of money, often far from home, and open to abuse from fans. Throw in mental health and it’s no surprise there are issues.

Sad read but good on him for his honesty ... It does help to talk ... I just hope that yvb-par and back onside can get the message across and help others

We are forever shaped by the Children we once were

It makes us remember that footba is a game with highs and incredible lows.

Was reading about a guy from a club down south had to retire recently at the age if 19. Unfortunately there are similar stories that don't have a happy ending. Hope he has a good support network around him to help him through.

c'mon the pars

Maybe the spectators that like to hurl abuse at our own team`s players who make mistakes or are having a poor game (because they pay their money and feel entitled to vent their disapproval) really do heap a lot of pressure on more mentally vulnerable players who are probably for the most part trying their best on the pitch. While not statistically significant it is interesting that home records of Championship teams this season are so far a little better on average than they have been in the previous four seasons with fans attending (see other thread on this topic).

Just shows that it can happen to anybody. Anxiety has been the bane of my existence. It totally sucks the life out of you.
