Mother of 2 and wife of England and Leicester footballer Jamie, Rebekah Vardy speaks openely of her Post Natal Depression and the undiagnosed depression she suffered in her teens.
We are happy to announce that avid supporter of YoungMinds and devoted mum, Rebekah Vardy, has decided to become an Ambassador.
Rebekah said that YoungMinds is a charity “that would have benefited me as a youngster, so I am honoured that they have appointed me as an Ambassador.
"It wasn’t until I had my second child and was diagnosed with Post Natal Depression that I started seeing a counselor and discovered that I had been suffering from depression as a teenager. No one realised, or took the time to notice, that a trauma I had experienced in my early teens had affected me so emotionally that it had triggered depression in me."
Diane Gault, Director of Fundraising for YoungMinds says: “We are delighted to welcome Rebekah as an Ambassador of YoungMinds.
If you’re worried about a child or young person’s mental health, there is plenty of help and advice including our free Parents Helpline.
