Liz Everard has over 20 years’ experience in the mental health sector and is the 2019/20 SANE Australia Hocking Fellowship grant recipient. She completed her nursing degree in the Netherlands and has worked in a variety of roles both in Australia and overseas. Liz’s personal passion for mental health advocacy was spurred by the death of her brother who lived with schizophrenia and took his own life in 1994. The grant is supporting Liz to research international care farm communities for adults living with complex mental illness and explore how this model of care could be provided in Australia.
