Bio

I am currently employed as a Carer Advisor at Carers NT where I provide information, advice, support and education to unpaid carers in Alice Springs and deliver SMHFA, Refresher SMHFA, MHFA for the Suicidal person and MHFA for Non Suicidal Self Injury courses across the NT. I hold a BSocSc in Human Resources and Labour Studies and also hold Cert IV TAE.

I am passionate about raising awareness and de-stigmatising mental health issues having had lived experience with a person with serious mental health conditions and also more recently with a loved one with dementia. This lived experience allows me to have an insight and passion into delivering interactive and engaging training in the Mental Health First Aid Courses which I believe give candidates a frame work and the courage to have a much needed conversation about mental health and any concerns that they may have for a person. I am looking forward to completing the instructor training for Older Persons Mental Health First Aid in 2019 to add to my profile of accreditation's and start delivering across the NT.
