Jason Taumalolo on mental health

Taumalolo has been public about the importance of mental health and wellbeing within the sporting community. He released an article with Athletes Voice ‘If the mind doesn’t want it, the body won’t follow’. Within the article he spoke on his own experience with mental wellbeing and how he dealt with it. He speaks on having the right mindset, having someone to talk to and hold you accountable, and the importance of feeling at home. His experience of moving from New Zealand to Australia was the major influence of his decrease in mental wellbeing but shares how he was able to overcome this and continue on to have a majorly successful career. 

This would be an inspiring subject matter to discuss with an audience with Jason Taumololo as a guest speaker. He has gone through the experience, learning along the way and is now able to explain how he was feeling and his solution to influence others in bringing awareness to seek or be someone’s support and to speak up and find help.
