Graham is a rural general practitioner, who has completed a doctorate in community psychiatry and works in Kimba, South Australia. Graham was named a member of the Order of Australia in 2014 for his significant service to medicine in rural South Australia, and as an advocate in the field of mental health and suicide prevention.
He commenced his interest in combatting local suicide issues in 1986 after a spate of suicides in his region prompted him to increase his work in the mental health field.
In 1993, Graham extended this work into a community wide mental health and suicide prevention program with a strong emphasis of child and adolescent mental health. Graham finds great pride in helping people get through their personal issues.
