Today’s guest Jake Edwards is doing some fantastic work with the company he foundered Outside the Lockerroom to help create awareness, education and support around mental health. Jake was drafted by Carlton in 2005, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather who both played in the VFL. During this period Jake realised that he was suffering from depression and after hitting rock bottom he is now on a mission to help others.

I first heard of Jake after listening to episode 13 on The Howie Games Podcast. I was so impressed with everything I heard about Jake and what he was doing to help others that I wanted to share his story with you today.
