Criminal convictions, Binge drinking, violent outbursts and marriage breakdown in 2008 saw former AFL player Heath Black hit rock bottom. It wasn't until 2011 that he was finally diagnosed with Bipolar and Adult ADHD. Man... This episode really lifts the hair up on your neck! Heath is a 192 game AFL player for Fremantle and St Kilda Fc is now a Mental Health Advocate who has seen some dark times during his life, but now is a shinning beacon of light helping thousands of people across Australia overcome mental health issues. This episode I was blown away by this guy and what he is achieving now. My hope for this episode is that it reaches those in most need for the life saving info thats within this recording. With those people in mind please do your part and pass this episode on. Forever grateful
