Executive Board Member, Support Group Representative
Jonine Collins has worked for more than 25 years in the health and community services sector. This has included management and senior executive roles across these sectors, with a particular focus on primary health care and public health. She has overseen the implementation of many innovative community programs and clinical services, including mental health, suicide prevention, chronic disease, disability, aged care and services to the Aboriginal community, homeless and other marginalised populations. Her various roles have provided her with considerable experience in advocacy, leadership, strategy, not-for-profit governance and government contracting both at the State and Commonwealth level.
Jonine’s current role is State Manager WA and SA for the Stroke Foundation and she also sits on another NFP Board and Council. Through her work, she feels passionate about the valuable role that Self Help and Support Groups play in our community by providing support to those feeling isolated, providing access to evidence-based information to feel empowered and most importantly assist with emotional and mental health well-being for the individual and their family whilst they are adjusting to living with an ongoing health issue, chronic condition or disability.
