A Brief Introduction

System Transformation at Victorian Branch, RANZCP & RCVHMHS

Spearheaded the response to the Mental Health and Wellbeing Act 2022 legislation which would see a significant impact on the functioning of MH systems and services for communities, consumers, carers and clinicians. I ensured engagement with various stakeholders including individuals and organisations representing Lived Experience Consumers and Carers, Nurses, Psychologists, Ambulance Victoria, Victoria Police, and sector representative bodies like VHA and MHV. I ensured active involvement with and of psychiatrists within the College, that of Binational as well as representing Sections, Faculties and Special Interest Groups
