Grad Bites: F.C. Not Alone Campaign for Mental Health
Student Matt Legg suffered an episode of depression, which forced him to defer his university studies for a year. Now fully recovered, Matt and his cousin set up the F.C. Not Alone campaign for mental health, a World Cup charity football tournament, to raise money and awareness for mental health and the prevention of male suicide, which is the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.
