Jonny Wilkinson shares who's been in his corner

Commenting on Jonny Wilkinson opening up about the pressures of elite sport, Time to Change, said:

“It’s great to see Jonny Wilkinson, a role model to so many, speaking about the importance of having his coach, Dave Alred, in his corner when the pressures of elite sport took their toll. By speaking openly about his experience, he shows that mental health problems can affect anyone and that having someone in your corner can make a huge difference. Too many men still don’t see mental health as being relevant to them. That’s why we’ve launched the ‘In Your Corner’ campaign – to encourage men to look out for their mates and step in if they’re acting differently.”
