Professional Background With 20 years Mental Health Nursing experience, I am both a general and mental health trained registered nurse.
My experience ranges from acute patient care, mental health promotion to education and lecturing in roles such as clinical nurse specialist and mental health nurse educator.
In my current role as mental health Academic for the WA Centre For Rural Health in Geraldton WA, I develop and facilitate mental health training program to the community, provide workforce development and upskilling in the health, education and welfare sectors.
Working in regional WA for the past 15 years has given me a strong understanding of the mental health needs of the community and it’s nursing workforce.
My current work focuses is developing a clinical upskilling mental health nursing program to be rolled out in the Midwest’s WA Country Health regional hospital to address mental health nursing workforce issues.
I am committed to advocating to improve mental health outcomes and increasing the community’s mental health awareness and literacy.
