Ahead of the 2018 Golf Day, we spoke to friends of Chris Mitchell to find out who the real 'Mitch' was.

Chris Mitchell was a footballer who, after suffering a back injury which never fully healed, fell into a deep depression and died by suicide in May 2017. He was 27 years old. Since then, his family set up the Chris Mitchell Foundation, and working together we have been providing Mental Health First Aid training within footballing environments to help others who are struggling with poor mental health.
