Also available from the site is information about the courses and training packing offered. Vision in Mind offers this award winning course designed by Betty Kitchener and Professor Tony Jorm. As the name implies it is a course about first Aid for Mental Health. We have found this course liberating for all who attend. It demystifies and destigmatises mental illness. It is a practical yet stimulating tool which will unlock many doors leading to education, confidence, and ability to both prevent and control mental illness.

Corporate Communique for events outside the square

Corporate Communique is a unique, creative, energetic and highly professional team of event organizers. Fay has spoken at many of their conferences across Australia and can attest to how exciting and captivating their events are. Corporate Communique has used Fay Jackson as a Keynote Speaker at a number of our conferences and we can’t recommend her highly enough. She continues to receive standing ovations for her unique angle on mental health, presented with both captivating stories and serious strategies for working with people affected by mental health. A key strength is her ability to relate the subject matter to any number of different audiences making it both interesting and importantly, relevant.

Fay is flexible to deal with, always punctual, well prepared and strives to get the most out of every one of her presentations.

Feedback from our delegates always has Fay at the top of the list of preferred speakers and we will continue to both use and recommend Fay on a regular basis.
