Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker shares his experiences of working in mental health while on his way to becoming a professional footballer.
“It kept me really going and kept me seeing the world in a different way, a totally different way, so when you experience first-hand what it’s about, when you really struggle, when you really need help from other people it keeps you down to earth… that was a humbling experience for me.”
