Last Friday the NZCPA and Otago Cricket held a past player event in Dunedin. Around 40 people attended the event including current Volts and Sparks Players. Also in attendance were Heath Mills, Paul Hobbs and Greg Dawson from the NZCPA. Past player and Otago Cricket Chairman Shane Robinson welcomed everyone and former Blackcap Brian Barrett gave a compelling talk about his battles with mental health - and how, with the help of the NZCPA and The Cricketers’ Trust he has come through the other side. He’s encouraging all current and past players alike to speak about any mental health issues they may encounter. Video courtesy of Otago Cricket.
