Jack Green made his Olympic debut in London in 2012 with a secret. He competed in the 400m hurdles and the 4x400m relay but what wasn't know about was his depression and mental health issues.

Jack had wanted to be an Olympian since the age of 7 but his memories of London were feeling full of fear and scared. It was a time when sport really didn't address mental health issues.

He's now working full-time in mental health for Champion Health and you can find the resources Jack talks about in the podcast here
