Bio

Andrew currently works as a contractor in the Perth area. Andrew holds qualifications including; Training & Assessment and Leadership & Management.

Andrew served for 16 years in the Australian Army as a non-commissioned officer and served with others who were experiencing mental health concerns. His role varied from supporting them as a peer, to managing them in his care. Due to these experiences, Andrew has an understanding in the rehabilitation processes used to help and manage mental health illnesses.

He also has experience in the FIFO environment in WA.

Andrew believes in reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, especially within the first responder community which will in turn reduce the impact of mental illness.
