Jules Haddock An accomplished conversationalist in mental health education, Jules has an engaging and creative approach in helping communities understand mental illness and how to manage the invisible blocks and walls often confronted, in life expeditions. She takes the myths and fictitious beliefs about mental illness, and weaves participants into developing safe and confident based approaches that can be used in supporting and maximizing confidence in “the space” for all involved. With gaiety and passion, she introduces us into an awareness of mental health literacy, recovery, and the importance of embracing strength based and person-centred journeys in understanding the recovery model.

Jules continues to offer support in the alcohol and drug sector programs, where she has a strong association with Foundation 61, in supporting the wellbeing model of recovery in group programs and presentations.

Her passion for delivering through the Mental Health First Aid course is far too large to put into words. Jules can only strongly encourage you to book in and complete this certificate as the community needs your help in supporting the mental wellbeing of each other.
