David Cotterill’s story is a tale of addiction, depression and ultimately redemption. During this conversation with Dr Sean Carmody, he reflects on his new-found purpose as a champion for mental health for those within sport, and beyond.
David Cotterill is coming up to 6 months sober when we speak. After each month of sobriety he collects a chip to mark the achievement; “To Thine Own Self Be True” it reads. Sharing this with his thousands of followers on social media motivates him, but perhaps more importantly, it serves as inspiration for those who continue to suffer in silence.
