Mental Health Peer Consultant in Burnie, Australia
I am working currently a volunteer for Flourish Mental Health Action in Our Hands Inc.
Flourish is an independent Tasmanian not-for-profit organisation established to provide a strong voice for the state's mental health consumers.
As part of volunteering with Flourish, I sit on several committees and advisory groups in my role as a Consumer Representative.
I have completed my Certificate IV in Mental Health Peer Work; and am actively seeking part-time work on the North-West Coast of Tasmania.
I am also available for speaking engagements, where I speak about my own lived experience and share my story in the hope of advocating for people with mental illness and reducing stigma in society. I absolutely love my work; I am passionate about helping people achieve their best.
When I am not working, I am spending my time writing, taking photos and exploring ways of improving my quality of life.
I live on the beautiful North-West coast of Tasmania with my wife and four children.
