Hull scrum half Brett Seymour will enter a three-week rehabilitation clinic to help his fight with depression.
Seymour, 28, was given leave by his club earlier this month after a car crash led to his wife admitting he was suffering from the illness.
He is being supported by Sporting Chance, the renowned organisation founded by ex-England football captain Tony Adams.
His wife Roseanne posted on the Facebook group “Get Well Soon Brett Seymour“: “Thank you all for your ongoing support.
“To all the people on here who have shared your own stories of depression, I want you to know that by sharing you have helped Brett so much. He sat and read each story and was truly overwhelmed. You have given him strength and also me.
“All I want is my husband to be healthy for our beautiful daughter Monroe.
“I pray that everyone who suffers this dark illness finds light and happiness.”
