The Professional Cricketers' Association (PCA) do a vast amount of incredible work supporting current and former players through difficult times in a range of situations. As the PCA reaches its 50th year it is highlighting the work of the Benevolent Fund which helps provide the support it gives those who need it. They have produced a powerful video speaking to a small selection of those who have benefited.

You need to talk, you need that avenue of communication and that channel is very helpful. Speaking to a counsellor about Tom really helps. I still have dark days but I know that I can always pick up the phone and speak to someone if I need to. And the PCA will not just help the one person who has played cricket: their Benevolent Fund will look after the whole family.
