Our website will be rebuilt over the coming months, to be more focused on ease of access to our resources and knowledge. Read more here.
I work part-time with Matua Raki providing clinical advice and input into various projects, as needed.
I am a psychiatrist and addiction medicine specialist working with adolescents suffering mental health and addiction related issues at Youth Specialty Services, Christchurch, and a Senior Clinical Lecturer with the National Addiction Centre, University of Otago Christchurch where I am involved in our postgraduate CEP programme. I was also a member of the DAPAANZ executive from its inception until last year, and am a life member of DAPAANZ. I was one of the original staff members of Matua Raki for several years, while it was hosted by the National Addiction Centre.
