Neasa Martin & Associates

consulting in mental health

2012

 
 

I have almost three decades of experience working as a mental health professional with a focus on recovery and rehabilitation.  Building on consumer insights, gained through a collaborative project approach, I help to transform thinking on mental health, develop consumer-friendly programs, plain language web and print materials, which blend expert research knowledge to meet health care, consumer, and family needs. A partnership approach is taken in delivering project management, policy planning and research.


Working at a regional, provincial and national level, I have actively assisted not-for-profit, health care facilities, governmental, professional, consumer and family associations, and for-profit organizations in undertaking research and resource development, needs assessments, program evaluation, policy development and by providing ongoing organizational strategic advice.  Through my management and consulting work, I have established strong linkages across stakeholder groups serving as a ‘boundary walker’ between stakeholders to improve service design and delivery.


Based on my own family and personal experience with mental ill-health I have maintained a life-long interest in improving the delivery of mental health services and emphasizing the importance of family and consumer-driven health promotion efforts that increase personal responsibility and empower people to make informed health choices.  Throughout my life, I have seen the harm inflicted by the stigma attached to mental ill-health and addictions and the value of timely intervention and effective treatment. 


I hold an honours degree in Rehabilitation Medicine - Occupational Therapy from the University of Toronto.
