staff & students
to engage in
Are you trying to improve mental health in your community or local area?
Are your wanting to improve behaviour or student mental health at your school but don’t know where to start or what to do?
Do you want to see improvements happen in mental health across your community?
Do you want to improve the mental health and behaviour of your students?
Have you tried to implement initiatives in one of these areas but it just doesn’t seem to make a difference or be long lasting?
Have you ever felt frustrated that your meetings and committees aren’t productive or that you spend all your time in discussion but never make a decision?
Do you ever get frustrated you’re met with resistance as you try to introduce change?
Do you want to make change sustainable and effective?
I feel passionately that we can do things better!
We can make a real difference to our communities, to our staff and to our students!
We can improve mental health in our communities by working together across the sectors.
We can utilise a Framework for change so that our work is sustainable and achieves the goals we have set.
I am an Independent Consultant who can help you achieve these goals!
I am a Chair and founder of a Community Mental Health Action Team and believe that implenting a cross sector approach to mental health allows us to work together across the sectors in order to achieve a common goal. It enables us to identify gaps and find effective solutions in order to engage in prevention, intervention and support in mental health in order to save lives.
I have also worked in Education for over 20 years as both a Level 3 Classroom Teacher and as a Deputy Principal. I have spent my career leading effective change for student mental health and wellbeing and behaviour with both staff, students and across networks and communities, and I want to help others share my success and apply these effective processes in their local environment.

Community or Cross Sector Approaches to Mental Health
My experience and steps for adopting a community approach to mental health
When I’m not working with others to deliver successful new initiatives and helping leaders to write engaging action plans, I can be found enjoying life with my husband and 3 boys on a beautiful farm in the South West of Western Australia.
I have 2 gorgeous dogs; Nitro, a hardworking farm kelpie and Nahla, a very cheeky and mischievous little Jug. I am a lead singer in a local band and I love to travel.
