Facilitator Portfolio My name is Kirhi Euloo Wiree. I am a Wiradjuri women from Whylandra Crossing in North Western NSW. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Sciences, Master’s in Public Health, Teaching & Education CERT 1V, Domestic/ Family Violence and Child Sexual Assault CERT 1V
I have worked in the field of Mental Health and ATODS (Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drugs) for around 30 years.
The majority of my work has taken place in Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities
I spent several years transient delivering programs in rural, regional and remote communities and missions. Although my work in Mental Health & ATODS has predominantly involved Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities I have also worked extensively with Government, NGO's mainstream individuals who either work with individuals who maybe be developing or have a Mental Health diagnosis or wish to increase their knowledge around Mental Health. I deliver to community members, front line workers and professionals.
I have occupied many positions over that time in Government and NGO's and other various organizations including Acute Multidisciplinary Mental Health Care Facilities working with a range of individuals at various stages of illness. Assistance and support included working with communities, families and carer's .
Course content & delivery
Participants will learn about cultural aspects, protocols and appropriateness when assisting/ supporting Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people with focus on the social & emotional wellbeing of the individual, their families and communities.
Participants learn about signs and symptoms of a developing or diagnosed mental illness and what they look like. Participants will learn about and understand better about some common types of mental illness. Participants learn what to do to identify, assist/support, and address a crises situation. You will learn how to stay safe and where and how to get the person who is unwell to the professional support they need. The AMHFA Training is delivered in an interactive format to enhance and increase learning potential. Those who have attended the AMHFA Training to date have had a very positive experience and state that the training has increased their knowledge and awareness of developing or a possible existing diagnosis. Participants have stated that they felt more confident that they will be able to supply the correct assistance and get the professional support for the person who is well as well as support their families, carer's and communities in a better way.
Lastly as the content is very sensitive and often very close to home participants learn a bit about self care looking after their own Mental Health.
