Grad Bites: Recovering from Depression – Matt’s Story

Student Matt Legg suffered an episode of depression, which forced him to defer his university studies for a year. Now fully recovered, he turned a very negative experience into an extremely positive one, setting up the F.C. Not Alone charity football tournament #PLAY4CALM, to raise money and awareness for mental health and the prevention of male suicide.
