Neil Lennon has revealed that he has battled depression this season, while guiding Hibernian to the Scottish Championship.
Mental health in football is in the news over the past week, after Everton winger Aaron Lennon was detained by police in the UK under the Mental Health Act.
Hibs boss Lennon has spoken in the past of his struggle with bouts of depression.
However, the former Celtic captain has admitted that it is something he continues to face, now he is in management.
Lennon spoke to Sky Sports News to mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week:
"The job is difficult enough when you're feeling okay, but when you suffer from a bout of depression, everything is magnified.
“You’re feeling ten times worse about things.
"I did have an episode of it this season for about four or five weeks.
“The club were great about it...really supportive, as were my back-room staff as well.
"I got through it OK and came out the other side. When you come out the other side it's a great feeling.
"There was a lot of people there for me, the LMA as well. They were a great source of help.
"What you do is you put a brave face on publicly - but inside you’re feeling it.
"I totally understand why people don't want to talk about it.
“But the more you talk about it to professional people, the easier it becomes to deal with."
