My name is Joyce Vidot and I have been working in the mental health sector for nearly 30 years. I have a background in Horticulture and I have supported employees living with mental illness in the Horticulture field for over a decade, helping some employees to achieve their Certificate 1 in horticulture. I am passionate about supporting people to become empowered and motivated to take control of their own lives.
I am currently working for a not for profit organisation that supports people with a mental illness and their families. It is an organisation with excellent values and ethics and over 50% of our employees have a lived experience. I am responsible for coordinating groups and facilitating training. I believe in the strength each person has inside of them and working with that person to help them to rebuild their confidence within themselves!
I became a MHFA Instructor because I believe that the more people that we can reach and educate the better the understanding we will have for people within our communities. For me, the conversation with the person is one of the most important steps to supporting the person on their road to recovery.
