CPFT clinician's praise for England star Jonathan Trott
25 November 2013

A senior clinician at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust has praised England batsman
Jonathan Trott’s decision to reveal that he has a stress-related condition.

Consultant psychiatrist Dr Manaan Kar Ray has called the move "brave" and hopes that it will inspire other people to seek medical help.

Dr Kar Ray, clinical director of acute care at CPFT, said: “This is a very brave decision by Jonathan Trott – and one which I applaud.
“It just goes to prove that it doesn’t matter who you are, how successful you are, or how high profile your role is, anyone can suffer from a stress-related condition
“There is help out there for people, they should first go and see their doctor and then they can be referred to our services.
“Everyone’s recovery journey is different and the support that CPFT can provide will help them on those first steps to recovery.”

It emerged today (Monday, 25 November) that Trott had left England's Ashes tour. The England and Wales Cricket Board said the batsman, who has scored 3763 Test runs at an average of 46.45, had departed the squad because of  a "long-standing stress-related condition".
