Dr Melinda Goodyear

Researcher, Emerging Minds, NSW

Dr Melinda Goodyear has over 20 years of experience working as an implementation scientist and researcher in the area of intergenerational vulnerability in families.

She is particularly interested in understanding how to support and promote mental health well-being amongst family members and how services can work with families where a parent has a mental illness and other co-occurring issues.

Melinda works as a Researcher and Implementation Specialist, supporting organisations to enhance their capacity to support parents in the care of their children, particularly when there is family adversity. She currently holds two positions: Senior Research Fellow at Monash University; and Manager, Research and Evaluation, Emerging Minds (www.emergingminds.com.au).
