#005 Snooker's Impact on Mental Health
Rob Reed is interviewed by BBC journalist Kal Sajad for the Get Inspired section of BBC Sport for a lengthy - and very personal - discussion about the positive effect snooker can have on mental health.
Rob talks about how he got into snooker, thanks to his dad, how he turned to snooker when working in Germany and how the sport proved a form of escapism when he hit mental health issues.
Snooker can be a great sport for personal development and self-understanding, he says, and became his “reset” time to help him learn how to address and manage his mental health.
