Child and Family Partner, Tas

Jaisen is a Family Partner with Emerging Minds. He has worked periodically in the mental health field since 2013 and holds a Certificate IV in Mental Health Peer Work.

He has contributed to projects with organisations such as the Children of Parents with a Mental Illness national initiative (COPMI) and Emerging Minds, and is a trained facilitator and guest speaker, and he has delivered short programs at mental health expos.

He has sat in on interview panels and forums as a consumer representative, utilising his lived experience as both a consumer and carer to provide advice and feedback on issues surrounding the improvement of mental health services.

He also worked in a voluntary capacity for Flourish, Mental Health Action in Our Hands Inc., as both a consumer representative and as Coordinator for the North-West regional Flourish Action Group.

Passionate about the improvement of mental health services for people of all ages, he hopes his engagement with service providers and health services in his role as a child and family partner will lead to progress in service delivery.
