I have lived experience with psychosocial disability, having started my journey of recovery in 2008 following progressive successes in treatment and management of the illness.

Since 2009 I have gained successive accreditation and work experience in the Community Services field, particularly Disability and Mental Health as a Support and Case Worker. I have had experience mainly working in ADHC group homes for people with profound Neurodevelopmental Delay, Aquired Brain Injury, Mental Health issues, and physical disabilities as well as positions in Community and Mental Health support, advocacy, and case work.

The foundations upon which I will build my delivery of the MHFA course material are my formal practical training, work experience, and theoretical academic background learning in this sector. I also have skills and understanding acquired from decades of previous life experience with Disability issues, and the Recovery model.
