Cardiff Blues Reveal Tom James Is Currently Being Treated For Depression
Time to break the stigma.
Cardiff Blues yesterday confirmed that Wales international winger Tom James is currently being treated for depression.
They say he has been closely supported by the Cardiff Blues medical team and is making good progress.
“His playing colleagues are in regular contact. The directors and management team are fully behind Tom during this period and look forward to his return at the appropriate time.” a statement read.
James has not played sine December 31, and to see a high-profile athlete come out like this is a huge step forward. It will no doubt help break the stigma associated with depression and mental health problems.
We wish him all the best in his recovery and urge anyone out there who’s suffering from depression to speak to someone.
Do not be afraid. It’s ok to not be ok.
