Danny played just under 300 professional rugby league games for Rochdale, Wigan, Castleford, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Bradford and Widnes. Danny played 8 times for England, before a serious spine injury forced him into retirement, Danny suffered from depression quite badly after that and courageously came through the other side, Danny is now a presenter for the STATE OF MIND SPORT charity. He speaks to sports clubs, schools, colleges, universities and workplaces about the importance of looking after your mental health. Danny has recently qualified to deliver Mental Health First Aid training to organisations on behalf of State of Mind Sport.
“State of mind as helped me with my mental health as it gives me purpose and back being part of a team. I’m happier now than I’ve ever been!”
Chris is a former professional rugby league player having played for Castleford Tigers, Wakefield Trinity and Dewsbury Rams. Chris’s inspiration to get involved with Rugby League came from watching and supporting Wakefield legend Graham Steadman with whom he was later able to play with as part of the Rugby League all Stars Squad. He has continued to play as part of PDRL with Leeds Rhinos club.
Chris’s Rugby League career came to an unfortunate and premature end following an on field altercation that resulted in an acquired brain injury and near death experience. Chris is keen to learn from his own experience and uses this to good effect in delivering for State of Mind Sport.
“Presenting for SOMS gives me a real sense of purpose. I have come to realise that if there is one thing that I can do, it would be to help save lives and support people who are experiencing poor mental health and help others where I can.”
This is a special event for Gold members only, come along and find out more about Mental Health and Well being.
