Sean Jeeves: Reach out if you can

3 January 2022

Calico Ghost Town guitarist Sean Jeeves joined Rovers' third shirt campaign in conjunction with CALM and LNER to raise awareness of the mental health struggles.

Sean’s bandmate James Miller sadly took his own life last year and his passing inspired a number of musicians from across Doncaster to raise awareness of mental health struggles with the DN One Live concert.

In November, Rovers, LNER and CALM joined with DN One Live to launch a blackout third shirt which demonstrates that mental health struggles aren’t always visible.

Under lights, the club’s badge and CALM logo can be seen on the shirt, but at first glance they are often invisible – just like mental health struggles.

Sean said: “I wanted to be part of this campaign because I’ve lost a couple of dear friends to suicide and I just wanted to be part of something which raises awareness of men’s mental health.

“It’s important to speak out whenever you’re feeling down. If people don’t talk, I feel like numbers of people completing suicide will climb. It’s so important to reach out whenever you can even if it’s talking to a stranger.

“Charities are always at the end of the phone. You don’t have to reach out to someone that you know – I find that hard – but reach out to professionals if you can.

“Everywhere you look, there are always charities like CALM. That support is there.

“There are always better days ahead.”
