Former professional sportsman Joe Williams shares his struggles with mental illness and reveals what has helped him survive and thrive.

Former NRL player, world boxing title holder and proud Wiradjuri First Nations man Joe Williams was always plagued by negative dialogue in his head, and the pressures of elite sport took their toll. Joe eventually turned to drugs and alcohol to silence the dialogue, before attempting to take his own life in 2012. In the aftermath, determined to rebuild, Joe took up professional boxing and got clean. Defying the Enemy Within is both Joe's story and the steps he took to get well. Williams tells of his struggles with mental illness, later diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder, and the constant dialogue in his head telling him he's worthless and should die. In addition to sharing his experiences, Joe shares his wellness plan – the ordinary steps that helped him achieve the extraordinary. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners are advised that this audiobook contains names of deceased persons. This story discusses mental health issues and suicide. If you or someone you know is affected by any of the issues discussed, please seek help. Call Lifeline any time on 13 11 14, or Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800.

Stan Grant
