MHPN Involvement: Coordinator: Coffs Harbour MHPN Network
Based in: New South Wales
The coordinator of MHPN's Youth Mental Health & Wellbeing Network in Coffs Harbour, Jesse Taylor recently arrived from the US where he worked as a Senior Director for The Food Bank For NYC in Harlem.
Jesse also works as the manager of headspace Mid-North Coast. He is an advocate for the advancement of mental health reform, a community organiser, poet, parent, and Restorative Justice Forum Facilitator.
Having worked for the last decade on a range of social justice campaigns on the local, state and federal levels, Jesse appreciates the support that MHPN offered him to re-invigorate the network.
As he says: “MHPN gave us the help we needed to get moving. Being accountable to the people we serve is a massive responsibility; for service providers to offer a comprehensive and appropriate service framework that empowers our clients to gain their self-sufficiency, we need to work together. MHPN is a supportive vehicle for this meaningful engagement.”
