I was a Mental Health Nurse with 28 years experience working in Far North Queensland until my retirement in 2013. Since 2006, I have been coordinating and delivering MHFA courses throughout this region. I believe that the only way to dispel the myths surrounding Mental Illness is to educate the public. I would like to see Mental Health First Aid become as popular as the other First Aid courses that are already commonplace in our society. Being a keen motorcyclist, I often join the Black Dog rides. This group supports Mental Health First Aid with many of its members having received this valuable training. I am happy to travel anywhere to deliver MHFA courses.
