I was asked to join Beyond Blue in 2006 as the Clinical Adviser and got to know the organisation very well from that point. Afterwards I was thrilled to be asked to join the Board as one of the Board of Directors.
What I liked is as a psychiatrist I get to help people on an individual basis, but being part of Beyond Blue has meant that I've been able to try and help people in a larger scale.
And trying to help the population of people with depression and anxieties. That's been a very strong motivator for me.
