Football's Suicide Secret

Since the tragic suicide of Gary Speed in 2011, football has had to face up to a stigma in the game - mental illness. But is there still a taboo in the sport? Footballer and chairman of the PFA Clarke Carlisle investigates depression and even suicide in British football and speaks to young players, managers and Gary Speed's family to find out why footballers are suffering in silence.
