Everton: Aaron Lennon Receiving Treatment For ‘Stress-Related Illness’ After Being Detained Under Mental Health Act


Everton winger Aaron Lennon has been detained under the Mental Health Act after police were called to an incident in Manchester over the weekend.

According to the Guardian, Lennon was taken to hospital on Sunday after police officers assisted him on a busy road in Salford.

A statement from Greater Manchester police read:

Police were called at around 4.35pm to reports of a concern for the welfare of a man on Eccles Old Road. Officers attended and a 30-year-old man was detained under section 136 of the Mental Health Act and was taken to hospital for assessment.

Everton have since confirmed that Lennon is now receiving treatment for “stress-related illness”, while messages of support and goodwill have poured in from all and sundry, including a raft of fellow sportspeople who have suffered with mental health issues.

Here’s wishing him all the best. Hopefully he’ll get all the care and support he needs to pull through.

    Stress?!?! Don’t make me laugh! What does he have to be stressed about? How many cars to buy, where to get his next diamond encrusted tattoo? These fucktards live on a different planet. He’s a pampered millionaire who kicks a ball for 90 minutes a week. Stressed my arse. And now the tax payer foots the bill for his “treatment”. Disgrace.

    Just a thought regarding the ‘taxpayer’ who is ‘footing’ the bill…
    Has Aaron Lennon not been a taxpayer all his working life?
    Given the hefty sums he has earned, surely he has paid a decent chunk in tax…

    Depression is tough. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor or successful… it’s a disease that makes you sad and there’s nothing worse than to be sad. I hope he get better soon.
