I have been working in the Community Mental Health sectors for 20 years, in community mental health organisations, community based drug initiatives, juvenile justice system and homeless services, providing direct service delivery, project development, management and policy change. I currently work as the NSW Health & Wellbeing Manager with Neami National, one of Australia's leading community mental health organisations. I hold a BSc Hons in Sports Science and additional tertiary qualification in Addiction Studies. Understanding mental health is the first step in breaking down barriers and tackling discrimination associated with the mental illness. By supporting and educating communities to better understand mental health and mental illness, we can begin address question and uncertainties that act as barriers to people’s understanding of what mental illness is. Being a MHFA Instructor equips me to support change while increasing knowledge . I have held my instructors certificate in Standard MHFA since October 2016, and also deliver the 4 hour MHFA Training For The Suicidal Person.
