Helen will present findings from her doctoral thesis investigating the reasons behind the variation in the performance of evidence-based practices in vocational rehabilitation for people living with mental health and addiction issues.
She will explain how to operationalise a new implementation framework to guide researchers, policymakers, and practitioners on how to improve the delivery of these practices and ultimately support more people living with mental health and addiction illnesses to achieve their employment aspirations.
She will discuss how this framework can be applied across a number of evidence-based practices.
Helen is the strategic policy advisor for the Wise Group, and also works as a senior advisor to the OECD and the New Zealand government, having recently been a co-author for the OECD New Zealand mental health and work, 2018.
Helen has a national leadership role for Equally Well, and since 2014, she has been on Pegasus Health’s Community Board, and now sits on the Pegasus Population Health Advisory Board. Helen is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Public Health, UOW.
