One of Australia’s star rugby league players Darius Boyd has spoken publicly about his childhood living in a family affected by mental illness.

A great mental health ambassador, Darius is known for his passion for wanting to support and help anyone who is affected by a mental illness and to increase awareness around mental health – one of Australia’s biggest health issues.

Darius’ story is one that our Kookaburra Kids can relate to. As a child Darius lived with his mother who at the time was diagnosed with a mental illness.

“I myself have gone through this and can relate”

To help raise awareness on how this may affect a child’s life Darius is proud to show his support for Kookaburra Kids.

“Let’s get behind the amazing work Kookaburra Kids does…”

Darius’ personal story about his childhood, teenage years, journey to playing football, as well as his own struggle with depression is truly an inspiration.

Kookaburra Kids is proud to have Darius Boyd as a supporter.
