Bio

Dave Weeks. BSc, Grad Dip (Outdoor Ed, Secondary Ed), Dip (AOD, Community Welfare), Cert IV (Training & Assessment, Mental Health). Dave brings to his training great enthusiasm and 20 years experience teaching and working with a wide diversity of groups in the outdoors. Passionate about outdoor adventure, Dave has a particular interest in the connection between our mental health and contact with natural environments. Having worked for many years now in the community mental health sector, Dave has developed an intimate knowledge of the difficulties and concerns of people living with mental illness; in particular, that of stigma and the lack of mental health literacy in the wider community. Not just a chalk and talk, Dave ensures his Mental Health First Aid training sessions are engaging, fun and filled with relevant stories and lively discussion.
