Men have a common Mental Health problem
Working-age adults have symptoms associated with mental ill health
People will deal with Bipolar their entire lives
Steve Samson, from Sheffield, is one of those people.
A talented footballer from a young age, Steve signed schoolboy forms for his boyhood club Sheffield Wednesday FC at just 13 years old
He remained on the books of Sheffield Wednesday throughout his teenage years
Every day he dreamed of playing at Hillsborough - Sheffield Wednesday's stadium
In 1981, aged 16, Sheffield Wednesday rejected Steve. He joined Mansfield for 4-5 months before suffering a nervous breakdown as a result of this devastating news. He was diagnosed with Bipolar and spent the next 25-30 years in and out of hospital, struggling with his condition.
Then Steve met Denise Marsh, who delivers football sessions at Manton Colliery AFC, a Football Foundation funded site.
Steve was recruited to help deliver football sessions and this gave him a new lease of life.
