Sir John Kirwan's book updated

From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 4 December 2023

When rugby legend Sir John Kirwan first released his memoir in 2010 detailing his struggle with mental illness, it was groundbreaking. It gave thousands of Kiwis across the country permission to talk about their own experiences with depression and anxiety. Now 13 years later, he's updated the book with more stories about his personal experience as well as practical advice when you are someone you love is facing down the black dog. It's called All Blacks Don't Cry  A Story of Hope.
