Bio

I was born in West Wyalong in NSW and farmed in that region with my wife for 20 years. I am now a Registered Psychologist living with my family in Wagga Wagga. Most of my work over the past 20 years has been with children, adolescents and their families where mental health issues are challenging. My particular research interest has been around the emotional impact of adverse weather conditions including drought on children and adolescents. More recently i have looking at the way consumers with mental health and intellectual difficulties experience the mental health service system.
