Mar 13, 06:00 AM

Mick is joined by Carrie and Clarke Carlisle as they launch their new mental health qualification at the University of Central Lancashire.

Clarke is an ex-footballer with Burnley FC, Leeds United, Blackpool, Preston, Northampton, Watford and York. He's also ex-Chair of the PFA, and has shared his story on Mental Health Monday about his battles against depression and suicidal thoughts in the past

Now he returns alongside wife Carrie, to share news of a new Advanced Certificate qualification they've created with the University of Central Lancashire.

The short course will give participants skills in the theory and practice of mental health advocacy - something Clarke and Carrie emphasise should be beneficial to those receiving help and those who are giving it.
