Sam Hutchinson has received a Toby Award from BBC Radio Sheffield to acknowledge the impact of his ‘Time to Talk’ show earlier this year.
Back in February, the midfielder joined presenter Adam Oxley on a Football Heaven special to speak openly about mental health during the live one-hour show.
Sam spoke on his own experiences with mental health issues, as well as taking calls from listeners to give advice and take in their stories.
The day after Sam’s appearance, Radio Sheffield received several calls to praise the Owls star for his candid interview.
On Thursday, he was invited back to join Toby Foster on the station’s breakfast show to pick up an award for his ‘Time to Talk’ special.
The midfielder spoke once again about his experiences in front of the live studio audience, from whom he received a warm reception.
Sam’s openness on mental health comes at an appropriate time, with the EFL’s charity partner being Mind, aiming to target football supporters and encourage them to seek support when needed.
Mind provide advice and support for anyone suffering with mental health problems, which will affect one in four of us through our lives.
