My work supports the mental health and addiction workforce to be effective for and responsive to the people who use services. I provide a service user perspective and lens for Te Pou’s work, especially on service user inclusion, participation, leadership and workforce development.
I’ve worked in mental health and addictions for 12 years now in service user roles including consumer advisory, auditing, governance, peer support, project management, training, facilitation, consultancy, evaluation, resource development, advocacy, writing, supervision and mentoring, and quality improvement.
I have wide life experience in many facets; the driving force for the work I do now is my own life-long resilience journey involving mental illness and navigating mental health services.
There is nothing that connection, love and hope cannot comfort and grow.
