Wasps Academy prospect opens up on Mental Health struggles

Well done to Will Wilson, the Wasps Academy forward who has opened up about the struggles that he  has had with mental health issues which a year ago left him on the verge of suicide.

Wilson, who has an Oxford rugby blue and England 7s caps, is currently on loan at Championship club Cornish Pirates. 

The article, written in his own words, is a powerful, eloquent and enlightening account of how mental health issues can affect anyone and is well worth a read.

Wilson hopes that, by opening up in this way, he will help others as well as himself. I'm sure he's right.
