About Helen

I am a senior research librarian specialising in mental health and wellbeing. I am passionate about improving communication, psycho-education, self efficacy and partnerships between individuals, health staff and services. I aim to empower people through providing access to reputable information and communicating fresh viewpoints in an innovative and creative way which often includes visual imagery.
In addition to my usual research role I regularly co-author systematic reviews with staff from St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne.
