Darius Boyd Tackling Demons
The NRL superstar bravely opens up about his battle with depression in his uncompromising memoir

Like many elite athletes, Brisbane Broncos player Darius Boyd seemingly had it all. A hugely successful career – now spanning 15 years – in the NRL with two premiership medals under his belt, and representing Queensland 28 times in the State of Origin competition. Boyd, 33, is also happily married to wife Kayla and a very proud dad to his two adorable daughters, Willow, 4, and Romi, 11 months.

But six years ago, Boyd tells WHO, the wheels were falling off. “I was seeing a therapist for a few years before I checked in to a mental health clinic,” he says. “I wasn’t getting what I needed out of it because I wasn’t 100 per cent committed. When I hit rock bottom, I realised I had some massive issues I needed to sort out. Only then, was I open to getting the help I needed.”
