Bio

Peta is a Principal Master Instructor and is an experienced and skilled facilitator who creates fun, engaging and interactive learning environments. Peta regularly runs public courses in Brisbane but can be booked Australia wide for private courses. She has experience facilitating to large and small organisations, as well as to Government, Schools, Childcare Centres, Community Services, Retail, Mining, Construction, Health, Insurance and specialises in working with those with a lived experience of mental illness and suicide as well as their carers. Peta is skilled in building rapport with participants and making people feel at ease as well as safe during courses. It is for this reason many organisations use From Me to You as their exclusive MHFA course provider.

What makes Peta different from other MHFA instructors is that she regularly presents and facilitates workshops at national and international conferences. Recently, Peta has presented at the International Association for Suicide Prevention World Congress for Suicide Prevention and IASP's Asia Pacific Conference, the 2022 Addictions Conference, the Workplace Mental Health Symposium, and TheMHS Conference. She is currently also contributing to the 2022 Stop DV Conference as a member of its Program Advisory Committee.

Peta has been a regular guest presenter on ABC Radio and is an active media spokesperson for a variety of organisations having been featured on national TV, radio and in print. She 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 has also contributed to the development of suicide prevention projects and initiatives with The Black Dog Institute, the Queensland Mental Health Commission and Everymind (formerly the Hunter Institute of Mental Health). She is highly regarded and respected nationally for her contributions to mental health and suicide prevention.

Peta 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. In addition to her roles as an Instructor and as a consultant with MHFA Australia, Peta also assists Roses in the Ocean (a Brisbane based national suicide prevention lived experience organisation) and The Gidget Foundation (a parenting wellbeing not for profit).

As a former high school teacher, Peta 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 lunch to ensure that you are well fed and get the chance to get to know your fellow course participants.
