Ep 286: Football>Anything - tackling depression through writing with Chris Roberts

Mar 20, 06:00 AM

Mick Coyle is joined by first time author Chris Roberts.

Chris explores how writing his new book about the state of the game of football helped him through a difficult spell in his life

Chris talks about living with grief, depressive and suicidal thoughts, and how the focus of the book, and the support he's received from organisations like Sean's Place have put him on a better path.

The book itself looks at different aspects of the game of football from "win at all costs" attitudes to club ownership.

Its available on Amazon - but you can pick it up in person at Pritchard's Books in Crosby, Merseyside.

A share of all profits will go to Sean's Place.
