My name is Carla Canning. My current role is Project Leader at Toowoomba Clubhouse. I have a diverse background which includes counselling, leadership, human resources and learning and development.
I've been very fortunate in all of my roles to be able to think creatively and collaborate with some amazing people. I get a buzz out of designing programs that are truly person-centred and outcome-focused. I was selected as a participant in the Australian Mental Health Leader's Fellowship because of this approach and for ensuring the service user's voice is always at the heart of everything I do.
From a personal perspective, I have a passion for helping others to recognise their potential and I see Personal Medicine as another tool to be able to help with this.
I have so much to be grateful for but thought I'd share a little about my pets - we have 1 dog and 2 cats. The excitement we experience when we get home is uplifting and over the cold days we've had recently, I've appreciated their warmth and affection. This is a photo of Vada - I don't think my house would feel as homely without her.
