Psychotherapist and former Huddersfield Giant Jon Bell joins us on the podcast this week to talk about his work on vulnerability, mental health and rugby league.

Over the past decade, mental health has become an increasingly important issue in the game, and is linked to issues such as masculinity, de-industrialisation and the changing nature of professional rugby league – and is part of a general mental health crisis affecting large numbers of working-class people.

This new episode discusses Jon’s unique insights into these problems and looks at rugby league is doing to help.
