Irish rugby player Hannah Tyrell has just delivered a powerful message with this video about her struggles with mental health.

The athlete speaks about how she first began experiencing mental health problems at the age of 12, problems which would go on to manifest in self harm, before she ultimately managed to find methods of overcoming her self-destructive thoughts.

Tyrell appeared in the video as part of the #TackleYourFeelings campaign which is dedicated to raising awareness for mental health problems, removing the stigma attached and educating sufferers on how to cope.
