Bio

Peta is a Principal Master Instructor and is also an Instructor Development Advisor with Mental Health First Aid Australia. She is an experienced and skilled facilitator who creates a fun, engaging and interactive learning environment who regularly runs public courses in Brisbane but is also able to be booked Australia wide for private courses. Peta has been a regular guest presenter on ABC Radio and is an active media spokesperson for a variety of organisations having featured on national TV, radio and in print. She has has also written pieces for national publications on the topics of mental health, suicide prevention and the role of lived experience expertise in research, planning and implementation of projects and services.

Peta regularly presents at national mental health and suicide prevention conferences and has contributed to the development of suicide prevention projects and initiatives with The Black Dog Institute and Everymind. She also works as a consultant and trainer with workplaces and organisations to assist them to develop better individual and team workplace wellbeing strategies as well as improving their communication skills and workplace self-care initiatives. Peta is currently working on a project with the Queensland Mental Health Commission to encourage individuals to engage with mental health and alcohol and other drugs services. In addition to her roles as an Instructor and as an Advisor with MHFA Australia, Peta also assists Roses in the Ocean (a Brisbane based national suicide prevention lived experience organisation) by supporting participants in their preparation to attend courses throughout Australia.

As a former high school teacher, she decided to become a Mental Health First Aid instructor to share vital knowledge and skills that anyone in the community can learn and use to help someone experiencing a mental health problem. Peta believes the course is useful for everyone as it reinforces that we all have a role to play in the mental health of others in our communities and workplaces.

If you join Peta on one of her courses expect to feel valued, supported and to have a good laugh. All her two day courses include a proper sit down lunch to ensure that you are well fed and get the chance to get to know your fellow course participants.
