Bio

Hayley is a passionate Master MHFA Instructor who uses her lived experience of mental health issues in her work and aims to decrease stigma. Hayley Harris experienced significant mental health challenges throughout her early life and had to leave school due to severe depression and anxiety. When Hayley received support from local Community Mental Health organisations and engaged in therapy, her life began to turn around for the better.

"The presenter was energetic, approachable and knowledgeable. She also appropriately included her own experiences which assisted with the teaching and learning." MHFA participant

She became a lived experience speaker, went on to gain a Diploma of Auslan, became a Disability Support worker, an education assistant and holds a Cert IV in Mental Health.

Hayley has worked for MIFWA (Mental Illness Fellowship of WA) since 2015. Hayley uses her hands on experience as a Support Worker and Facilitator to develop workshops and training programs to increase Recovery-Oriented Practice in WA's mental health workforce. In her role at MIFWA, Hayley has also developed teen workshops and delivers these across Regional and Remote WA.

"Hayley was professional, engaging, authentic, absolutely fabulous instructor. This one was on the best facilitated courses I have been to, and I've been to many in my 30+ years in the workforce." MHFA participant

If you would like Hayley to deliver Youth, Standard or Teen MHFA in your community or workplace, please get in touch.
