Notts County full-back Matt Tootle has spoken out to raise awareness of Mental Health Awareness Week.
Last year, the 27-year-old opened up on how his career was almost derailed due to mental health issues and had cognitive therapy to help assist him.
Tootle has been widely praised by his Notts teammates, staff and fans, not to mention the wider football world for speaking out.
The player has once again sought to raise awareness of mental health and wrote on Twitter: "I’d just like to try and help raise awareness again for how important it is to speak up and not be ashamed of a mental health issue, I continue to believe we are making great progress in making mental health something not to be ashamed of!!
"I continue to battle my own struggle day to day but I love my life and everyone in it! Anyone out there who is struggling please speak to someone."
Tootle has enjoyed a superb season in the Black and White, winning the Notts County Fans Player of the Year award this term.
