Junior Fern and Wellington Phoenix midfielder Grace Wisnewski has talked openly of her efforts to overcome the mental health issues that cut short her season.

“After games, I didn’t really eat or talk to anyone,” she told 1News.

“I’d spend days in bed, I’d miss training.”

While recovering, Wisnewski went public with a letter she wrote to her mental illness, saying it was stopping her being the person she is and preventing her enjoying the things she loved.

Wisnewski told her story to 1News in this interview broadcast on May 26.
