Wishing all the best for Lance Buddy Franklin as he receives treatment for a mental health illness.
With all the media attention this may be difficult and also highlights how the stigma around mental health is still well and truly present (some truly appalling rumour mongering in blogs that attack Buddy’s character).
What is great to see is the support he has received and how other sporting identities who have also struggled with a mental illness have praised Buddy for taking the time out to get well. Let’s hope the inevitable media attention doesn’t impact on his treatment
