CONSULTING 

The field of mental health and addiction can be confusing and overwhelming. It can be difficult to assist your clients who struggle with both mental illness and addiction (dual diagnosis). Challenges may arise in understanding what support and resources are available, who to contact, how to identify treatment options and knowing how to offer an integrated treatment approach.  

 

My consultations will assist you, as a professional or organisation, to better assess the complex needs of your clients, work collaboratively with treatment teams and develop effective and comprehensive plans to address the unique needs of your clients.

I can offer large health care systems, and organisations, cross sector care pathways to efficiently provide integrated mental health and addiction treatment and resources. Through my training and consultations, I will help build your organisations capacity to respond effectively to individuals with complex needs. 

  

 

My consultations can be accessed in- person (Mornington Peninsula) or virtually.
