About this event

Mind and Body invites you to join this virtual seminar where you will hear a number of local leaders from Aotearoa speak about a range of topics relevant to the peer and lived experience sector and shifting the paradigm. This seminar will be of interest to a range of people who access support, or who are working or volunteering in peer, consumer and lived experience roles across a range of social services, including justice, housing, mental health and addiction, and disability.

Speakers

Martin Burke

Martin is Programme Director Lived Experience at Ministry of Health MHA Directorate. Martin has held a variety of positions at both regional and national levels and is passionate about stakeholder involvement in the planning, delivery, and evaluation of MHA services. He will be delivering our keynote and opening address.

Hannah Komatsu

Hannah is a lived experience facilitator advisor and currently working alongside the Ministry of Health where she has been involved in the lived experience engagement around the repeal and replacement of the Mental Health Act. She has done a lot of work in her local Ōtautahi/ Christchurch community, including the Divergence Festival, Black Dog Walk Off, Mad Poets and the establishment of Thriving Madly as a grassroots community initiative.

Kerri Butler

The Director at Take Notice and has worked in various leadership roles in the mental health and addiction sector since 2009, including roles focused on Māori workforce development, leadership development and project management. Kerri’s lived experience is a key factor in ensuring delivery of meaningful outcomes that are informed by tangata whaiora.

Kevin Harper

Kevin has recently been appointed as the new CEO for Changing Minds after his previous role as Principal Advisor MHA Lived Experience communities with the Ministry of Health MHA Directorate. Kevin is a thought leader who sees his contribution as that of questioner and connector, wanting to understand every perspective. He has helped lead transformation in mental health by putting people’s wants and needs first and supporting innovative and alternative responses, and envisions a system designed by people, for people, delivered collectively and connectedly to build on people’s rights and strengths.

Tania Anderson

Tania is a systems and participatory designer, and a recovering project and change manager in all things social innovation. Tania's capabilities extend to cross-government collaborative system design in policy and strategy; trauma and adversity informed participatory practices with people experiencing and working in homelessness, mental health, distress and addictions, family, and sexual violence. She believes in making systemic changes in our world that take people’s lived experiences seriously, by privileging the voices of those that have been marginalised and excluded from our systems. She has learned how to harness her own lived experience of mental health, distress and addiction in ways to enable and support change.

Edith Moore and Ruth Cheeseman

Two of the DRIVE Network Coordinators. Edith is a mother of two and grandmother of three. She re-entered the workforce in December of 2017 after being unemployed for nine years due to addiction and mental distress. She was born in Manurewa and is of Cook Island Māori descent. She has previously worked at the University of Auckland as a lecturer in Pacific Health and as a Pacific Postgraduate mentor.

Ruth has done lots of mahi in mental health services working in Peer Support and as a Consumer Engagement Advisor at the DHB, and PET facilitator for two mental health and addictions services in the community. Her passion in recovery is that people can find support, do what works for them, and have a voice that is heard.
