Please see Fays ‘Profile Page’ for information about her. It is far too long and impressive to list here. Fay has been awarded Principal Master Trainer Status, Mental Health First Aid. Last year Fay was awarded the inaugural MHFA Champion Award. She has won many other awards for her work including the Australian Meritorious Service to Community Award, Australian Rotary Health Research Fund. Fay’s favourite sayings are “Well that’s the way I remember it!”, “what’s normal anyway? What does a normal gum tree look like?”, “I’m not crazy, I am a Psychologically Diverse Citizen”, “A life lived in fear is a life half lived”, “Make your mark but don’t leave a stain”, “Why try to fit in when you were born to stand out?”, “George I’ve done something to the computer (fax machine, printer, phone, car etc)”. Fay has many positive attributes but technology is not one of them. And “oh can I tell you something funny”.
George Stinson has the precarious job of keeping the IT viruses, worms, wolves and glitches at bay. He ensures communications are running smoothly and offers the male perspective to the company. (A very brave man indeed). Georges favourite saying after one of us has done something to the computers again “Geeeeze, look, let me sit down so I can see what you’ve done” and “now that’s a good inscription for your head stone” or “and that is why I killed her your honour” which is always said quietly under his breath as he walks away from Fay’s computer.
Ellie Stinson is business advisor and has the dubious task of teaching Fay to keep track of her money matters, receipts, invoices etc and is frequently heard to say “No Fay the ash tray of the car is not where we store our receipts” and “anyone want a drink, because I surely need one” ( only at the end of the day, we are obviously a highly professional team).
Anna Georgia has filmed, directed, produced and edited motivational and educational DVDs for Vision In Mind. Her film “Down Side Up” about Fay and her attitudes to her bipolar disorder was short listed for the 2006 Hope Awards. Anna believes that a little angel on your shoulder is not quite enough to ensure your on the right track in life. Most heard sayings “come here and I’ll give you a cuddle love”, “its all good” and “Umm its about the computer George”. Anna has also embarked on the speaking circuit. She is incredibbly energetic, has an amazing story to tell of her many years of world travel, working with Indigenous people around the world put particulary in Australia. Please also see our video page where you can see “Down Side Up”. Anna will teach you about her journey with her own mental health, about being the daughter of a person with bipolar and she will have you dancing, singing, and using body percussion. Do yourself a favour and book Anna. You can also book Fay nad Anna as a double act.
