Writing for ‘The Hoopla’ Boland shares the challenges of managing his illness and the perceptions the public have of mental health.

“I received a tweet from someone I have never met telling me to “man up”. Even worse, one of my own shows trivialised the condition of English cricketer Jonathan Trott.
