The Jimmy Gittins Story

A key member of the State of Mind Family is Jimmy Gittins who had a professional rugby league career spanning over a decade. Jimmy sustained a serious neck injury that ended his rugby league playing career and he now speaks tirelessly about the importance of reaching out and speaking about your State of Mind.

The film got a broadcast airing as part of Sky Sports 1′s Super League Superstars on Thursday 10th April 2014 – the whole show focussing on Jimmy Gittins.

“I’m sure when bad things happen to us in life, many of us would want to forget they ever happened. To share my life’s adversities with the hope of possibly helping others, was something I felt it was the right time to do. But capturing it correctly and accurately was very very important to me. The understanding of this difficult task was easily taken care of by the professionalism of Mocha, making it a pleasure to share my story with them. The finished film totally blew me away! It far outweighed any expectations I had. I just hope that all involved realise their worth in delivering such a powerful film.” Jimmy Gittins
