Aaron Lennon Urges Those With Mental Health Problems To Seek Help

Aaron Lennon is thankful for those who have helped him return to a "great place" in his life.

Earlier this year, the Everton winger was detained by police under the mental health act. Officers were concerned for his welfare. The 30-year-old was subsequently treated for a stress related illness.


Lennon has since returned to first team football with Everton. He's started 11 games this season, making 16 appearances in all.

In a New Year's message sent via Twitter, Lennon thanked those who aided him in his time of trouble.

He also urged those suffering from mental health issues to seek help, reassuring them that they are not alone.

2017 has been a year I'll never forget and there's so many people I wanna thank for making the year end in such a special way.

I cant name everyone individually but a lot of you know who you are. Again I want to thank my family and friends, everyone at Everton football club, the fans and everyone at all the hospitals.

I'd especially like to thank everyone at the priory for being there for me through some tough tough times and everyone who sent me get well messages.

With all your help I've managed to get myself in a great place and loving each day like you should, also learning so much about myself and learning how important the mind is and what I need to do to look after it.

Also I want to say again that anyone needing help or not feeling right, there's so much help out there you are not alone. Please seek this help and believe the tough times are not forever.

I've also been asked a lot why I haven't spoke out or done more things on the situation. I will be doing in the near near future, I'd just haven't yet as the time hasn't been right.

Lastly I just want to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2018, it's going to be a great year!!!
