Stevie Ward is an ex-professional rugby league player and former captain of the Leeds Rhinos, before recently choosing to step away from the game due to concussion.
Stevie’s career demonstrates not only the highest of highs in sport, being a two time Grand Final and a challenge cup winner, but also the devastating adversities that come with them; 10 operations and three major concussions all before the age of 27.
Stevie launched Mantality in 2016 after experiencing depression and anxiety amongst the highs and lows of rugby league. He felt that mental health wasn’t spoken about enough amongst men and in the sporting arena so his mission was to shine a light on the darkness that men can go through. Stevie also provides a proactive approach that helps men to remove unnecessary suffering and live a resilient life with purpose and meaning.
