Wayne Schwass has again spoken openly about his battle with mental health on Triple M's Hot Breakfast.
Swatta, who starred for North Melbourne and Sydney across 15 years and has advocated for mental health, joined Eddie, Darce and Brig this morning.
“I spent 12 years hiding my mental health conditions from everyone but 4 people,” he said.
“Everybody else that I knew and engaged with - including my father and family and my best mates at the Kangaroos - I hid it from from them for 12-years.
“One of the challenges is that is so counterproductive to you being healthy and well.
“If I can share my story, it’s really about empowering other people, do not make those same mistakes because it’s not worth it and your health is.”
