Australian Story

Beating the Blues | Greg Inglis

Whether playing for the Storm, the Rabbitohs, Queensland or Australia, rugby league legend Greg Inglis was a force to be reckoned with. But off the field was a different story.

For years Greg and those close to him struggled to make sense of his powerful mood swings.

He was prescribed a range of medication for depression and anxiety and self-medicated with alcohol, leading to two stints in rehabilitation clinics.

It was only after the second of these that he received a correct diagnosis for his condition — bipolar II.

As Inglis prepares to resume his career in the UK, he speaks with extraordinary candour about his mental health to ensure others with the same condition don’t suffer in silence.

Putting the ‘real’ into reality TV, the award-winning series with no narrator and no agendas – just authentic stories told in people’s own words. Immerse yourself in the life of an extraordinary Australian.
