In 2000, respected sports broadcaster Craig Hamilton was hospitalised after suffering a public psychotic episode. He was later diagnosed with Bipolar 1 Disorder. The experience was traumatic, but encouraged Craig to speak up and challenge the stigma associated with mental illness and health.  

He spent 12 days in hospital and, since his recovery, has become one of Australia's most high-profile speakers on Mental Health, Lifestyle and Wellbeing. 

Craig has written two biographies documenting his journey and spoken across Australia, discussing the depths of his illness, depression, suicide, men’s health and becoming one of the nation’s leading mental health advocates. In sharing his story and experiences he offers hope to others.

 Craig started his career as a broadcaster with ABC Radio in 1994. Since then Craig has covered Rugby League, Rugby Union and Cricket at international level as a commentator.  Craig is probably best known as a member of the "Grandstand" Rugby League commentary team.
