Shez battling mental health issues

Brendan Sheridan, our assistant coach, has reaffirmed what he told the Roughyeds website a fortnight ago — that his successful battle to beat Covid-19, during which he was in a coma for two weeks, has affected his mental health.

It was revealed in the Daily Mirror during Mental Health Awareness Week that he has been referred to the Sporting Chance clinic which deals with post-traumatic stress disorders.

It was founded by Tony Adams MBE to take care of the mental health of professional sportspeople.

Shez, who says he owes his life to the wonderful NHS staff at Pinderfield Hospital in Wakefield, told reporter Gareth Walker: “I had a Zoom Call with Sporting Chance after being referred by Rugby League Cares and that has opened me up a bit.”

Speaking bravely, and from the heart, Shez has also done an in-depth interview with Gareth which is due to appear in Monday’s League Express.
