In former England football star Rio Ferdinand suddenly and tragically lost his wife and soulmate Rebecca aged to cancer It was a profound shock and Rio found himself struggling to cope not just with the pain of his grief but also with his new role as both mum and dad to their three you. I watched Being Mum and Dad on BBC One when it was broadcast and I don't think any documentary has ever touched me or had such a large impact on me as this oneIn this day and age when there is so much fight for feminism and Woman's rights I do strongly feel needs to be done for men and in particular their mental health Rio Ferdinand has taken a huge step in raising this point with his documentary and new book Thinking out Loud 85% of the people who seek help after losing a child are woman Over 13 of men abuse alcohol after experiencing the loss of a loved one and suicide is vastly higher in men I know a lot is being done to encourage men to speak out but is the help actually there for them or anyone when they finally find the courage to do so The main focus of this book is to tell Rio and Rebecca's story He pays homage to the strong amazing and loving mother friend and wife that Rebecca was before she lost her life to cancer and how her death affected himself and his childrenHe talks about the amazing services available for families dealing with grief He raises awareness of the lack of services He raises the uestion of why we don't discuss death He talks about the stages of grief the one most strongly portrayed is denial He talks about guilt and his struggle with being a single parent and he talks about the other amazing people who have shared their stories which have inspired and enabled him to find hope One of the most encouraging things about this book is that you can tell it has been written by Rio It hasn't been edited to be fancy to show him in an amazing light to act like he is now a therapist in dealing with grief It is raw imperfect and honest I felt frustration sadness inspiration and so much sorrow reading Thinking out Loud but most importantly I felt hope Rio has shown with the right help and support life can go on Life can get better and one day you will smile againI could go on forever about the impact this book and documentary will have on men's mental health in the future but we would be here all day I am truly grateful to Rio for finding the courage to share his story and for helping so many others I wish him and his children all the best for their future and I hope he continues to fight and raise awareness for men's mental health and grief management Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in return for an honest review
