Michael Yardy – England cricketer – talks in The Mirror about his experience of depression

December 17, 2011

The Mirror has an article today in which Michael Yardy talks about his depression which forced him to leave the England squad during the 50-over World Cup..

WORLD T20 winner Michael Yardy has lifted the lid on life with depression and revealed his desire to help England retain their trophy.
Yardy hasn’t had any ­involvement with the national side since leaving the 50-over World Cup in India early to face his problem – and learn how to cope with it.
And Yardy said: “What you’ve got to remember is that anyone can get it. It is different ­pressures with different people. There are people who don’t have a ­privileged life like I do, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t get depression.
“I see it in the same way as a player who has had injury ­problems. I don’t think it is any different. There is always a risk that someone might pull a hamstring if they have had hamstring ­problems before.
“I see it as a way of living my life. It is a case of ­understanding I have to do certain things to keep well."
