Mental Health Commissioner has appointed three new Deputy commissioner

Hi Everyone,
Just thought I’d spread the news that the Mental Health Commissioner has appointed three new Deputy commissioners.

§ Karen Burns, CEO of UnitingRecovery and champion for the role of the community-managed sector in delivering mental health supports.

§ Dr Martin Cohen, a psychiatrist and health system leader with particular expertise around the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

§ Allan Sparkes CV, VA, a former police officer and suicide prevention advocate who has a lived experience of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.  
Kind Regards
