Lee Ellis (@LeedsUnitedLee): I remember when the news broke about #GarySpeed. Day before he was on BBC focus and he seemed ok in himself but we didn’t expect him not to be with us day after, his death showed how mental illness is hidden. If you feel down/Unsure there is always someone to talk to. #SPEEDO
