Former professional athlete and chart-topping musician turned mental health advocate, Niall Breslin, features in Episode 6 of the Working on Wellbeing podcast.

From professional athlete, via chart-topping musician, to mental health advocate and now PhD student: Niall Breslin has had a pretty unique career.
