Andy is a specialist Mental Health Nurse and educator with 30+ years of experience in clinical, management and education roles in health, community, mental health, aged care and tertiary education settings. He operates his own business, Face To Face Mental Health Training and Consultancy. He has been a specialist lecturer in Clinical and Non-Clinical tertiary Mental Health qualification courses in hospital, TAFE and higher education settings. He is a previous winner of his State's Nursing Excellence Award and has been twice nominated for the Margaret Tobin Award for Excellence in Mental Health Service. Andy brings years of expert clinical experience to his teaching, and his clinical stories add colour and meaning to the learning experience of participants. Andy became a Master level Mental Health First Aid Instructor in June 2012 and a Principal Master Trainer in May 2018. He maintains contact with the mental health industry through regular work across the sector and provides mentorship to other Mental Health First Aid trainers across Australia. Whilst he is sought after in the inpatient and community health and care sectors for his expert knowledge in mental health and client behaviour management , many of Andy's clients come from other industry sectors including those traditionally unrelated to the health sector, such as engineering, local government, primary industries, mining, transport and Legal Practice. Andy is available to travel to distant or remote venues where terms for fees, travel and accommodation have been negotiated. Andy's organisation, Face To Face Mental Health Training & Consultancy, conducts tailored workshops on other mental health related topics and provides consultancy around client/customer management where this is required. Many workshops can be tailored to your needs. Please visit, or contact Andy to ask questions or to discuss your training needs on 0448 228 874 or
