Legendary All Black Liam Messam speaks on mental health. Liam played 13 seasons for the Chiefs Super Rugby, and 7 whole season for the national team the All Blacks, and won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games for Rugby 7’s. Living such a focused and solid career in professional rugby, Liam also developed a very hard exterior. In doing so, he battled carious internal struggles that not a single soul knew of, not even his wife.
Join us as we speak on the international rugby star’s life from being adopted, to facing dark times, to climbing the ranks of his rugby career, to being one of the first of his generation in All Black rugby to start to speak up around mental health. I found myself incredibly inspired by his ability to share what was once perceived as “softness” in such a lighthearted but raw manner. He jokes that you can find him eating butter chicken in Hamilton if you look hard enough.
