About this event

Come along and listen to John’s story along with some of the tools he has used to stay well during challenging times.

JK’s personal journey with depression has led him to be actively involved in mental health awareness campaigns in New Zealand. For his incredible commitment and work in this space JK was appointed as an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to mental health in the 2007 Queen’s Birthday Honours. And in the 2012 Queen’s Birthday and Diamond Jubilee Honours, JK was appointed a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit, for services to mental health and rugby.

A world class winger, JK’s contribution to rugby, both as a player and a coach, has been immense. JK is one of the highest try scorers in international rugby union history and still holds a couple of NZ rugby records. The other side of the story is while he was scoring tries and becoming a rugby legend, he was also battling depression.

Sir John Kirwan will be in Westport on the 2nd of March for this free event commencing at 6pm at NBS Theatre.

During the day, Sir John Kirwan will be visiting the Westport Community Hub as well as some of our local schools talking to our youth and community groups.

Please note the NBS Theatre is a double vax venue, attendees will be required to show their ‘my vaccine pass’ on entry and comply with Covid19 guidelines.
