Ian has lived in Albany since 2018. He worked as a counselor in the wheatbelt for 13 years before that. He has worked in Mental Health, Child Protection and Disability Services and has delivered more than 60 MHFA courses to communities, workplaces and special interest groups. His style is inclusive and humorous and he brings a wealth of coal-face experience to the course. He's a Dad to a beautiful, eight year old girl and step-dad to a young man who has traversed his teens and gone off to study in Melbourne. He and his wife are a couple of musicians who have put down their instruments while the kids have been busy but are now looking to launch themselves into the next phase of their lives - whatever that may be ... should be fun!
