Jacquie Lee

Communications Officer, Emerging Minds, SA

Jacquie Lee is a writer, editor, and Communications Officer at the Emerging Minds: National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health.

Jacquie’s role as editor at Emerging Minds is founded on a robust knowledge of the issues that affect infant and child mental health, and the practices that support positive and safe outcomes.  Jacquie plays a lead role in liaising with internal and external authors to produce content that is evidence-based, innovative and accessible to all practitioners.

Jacquie began her career in the arts and has worked with some of South Australia’s leading festivals and theatre companies including the Adelaide Fringe, Adelaide Festival of Arts and Windmill Theatre Company.

After seeing the negative impact that working in the creative industries can have on mental health, she enrolled in a Graduate Diploma of Psychology with the University of New England and joined the Emerging Minds team shortly thereafter.

Jacquie has a particular interest in practice approaches that provide innovative, empowering and non-stigmatising engagement opportunities for disadvantaged children and their families.

 

The Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri and the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation, the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which our office is situated. We also acknowledge Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
