Winks Encourages People to Be Open about Mental Health during Lockdown

England’s Harry Winks has called on the people to be transparent about all the problems they have with life in the lockdown.

The 24-year-old, interviewed by Micah Richards as part of the Football Association’s #footballsstayinghome campaign, admitted that not everyone finds it easy to address their mental health, but emphasized the importance of what is a difficult period in society.

“It’s important – especially as men, not just footballers,” he said. “We always trained never to really talk about things and get it off our chests but I think now everybody is more open about it. People have come out and said more about their problems, it’s important that everyone talks about it and it leads to a healthier lifestyle and mindset.”

Winks has been busy after restrictions, keeping Tottenham in line with regular Zoom sessions, and is fortunate enough to have a near support network of loved ones to stay in contact with:

“When you’re trapped in your house it can be quite difficult. I’m lucky I’ve got such a strong group of people around me – my friends, my family who I talk to every day, and it’s important that I stay in touch with them.

“I follow government guidelines, go for a daily walk every day as well, just to get out of the house, get some fresh air, a bit of exercise. But I’m lucky that I’ve got that close-knit family and friends around me.”
