Johnny Nelson joins Sheffield Mind in the fight for greater mental health awareness

Sheffield Mind today announces former world champion boxer Johnny ‘The Entertainer’ Nelson will be joining as an official ambassador of the local charity. Sheffield born Johnny, who held the WBO Cruiserweight title from 1999 – 2005, was inspired to get involved with the local mental health charity following feedback he received from fans after opening up about his own experiences on a recent Sky documentary.
 
Keen to promote the links between physical and mental wellbeing Johnny said, “I’m excited to be joining Sheffield Mind as an ambassador to support mental health awareness in my home city. I’ve personally seen how mental health issues have affected people in the boxing profession and my work with prison inmates has shown how failure to resolve issues such as stress, depression and anxiety in young life, can lead to issues later on with people, especially young men,making poor life choices.
 
“Prince Harry recently cited boxing as something he used to escape from the emotional distress he experienced following his mother’s death, and the links between physical and mental wellbeing have been widely documented. I’m keen to promote these links within my role as an ambassador for Sheffield Mind and do what I can to support the delivery and development of their services.”
