To mark World Mental Health Day, Blues Community Trust arranged for Lukas Jutkiewicz to surprise an inspiring volunteer.
After experiencing mental health problems, third-year degree student on the Blues Community Trust's Football and Education programme Luke Reilly, began sharing his personal story in order to help others in the same position. Luke has spent the last year visiting schools in Birmingham and delivering his own mental health workshop to start conversations around the subject.
Last week, Luke shared his presentation with first year degree students to encourage them to prioritise their mental health.
Lukas Jutkiewicz surprised the group by getting involved with the session. The Birmingham City forward offered the students advice and a revealing insight into his own mental health experience and the pressures of being a professional footballer.
