Struggling by Ben Alexander
A retired athlete learning that it's ok to struggle.
“Ben's a retired Australian Rugby player, and is really open and honest about men's mental health. It's something that I feel is really important - helping men to open up about how they're feeling. Go give him a read. He's a good guy.”
David Johnson, The Observing I
“Benny A sharing his struggles in life after footy.”

“After meeting Benny I realized he is very much an every day bloke, that just happened to have a pretty cool job. Benny played Rugby Union at the highest level, representing Australia and playing for the ACT Brumbies Super Rugby franchise. 'Struggling' isn't your typical retired athlete adjusting to life post-career though. Benny's vulnerability is refreshing and thought provoking. It's also very engaging and often his replies in the comments section are as good as the blog. Read it.”
