Matt suffered an episode of severe depression, which meant he had to defer his university studies for a year.  Now fully recovered and back at uni, he set up the F.C. Not Alone campaign to raise awareness and money (£10k so far!) for mental health charities.
Matt talked to us about his experience, in the hope that it will help other people struggling with anxiety or depression. Find out more about his story, his work with F.C. Not Alone, and his recovery process:
