Really sad news breaking currently that Brett Finch has returned to a mental health facility after a ‘medical episode’.
Finchy, I don’t know you but all the best champ. Hope you conquer your demons
Well said mate! I was hoping he was on top of it all now, but mental health issues are extremely hard to break!
If I’m not mistaken, wasn’t he on a footy show a few months ago high on something? Drugs and mental health sometimes go hand in hand, if he does have an addiction with something and the something is exacerbating his mental health, I hope he can get the support and has the inner strength to get them both under control.
Here’s hoping that he can come through this.
Could the concussion’s he experienced during his career, be a contributing factor ?
Only someone in the medical field would know that. He has however stated numerous times how he has struggled with life after football. Misses the excitement, recognition etc which doesn’t sound like is concussion related in my completely untrained and lack of any medical knowledge opinion.
