Our Staff

Kirsty Stretton

Turoolba Clinical Lead

I am a registered psychologist with a background working in mental health for both the government and non-government sectors, supporting individuals of all ages to improve their mental health. I have experience working in rural communities and understand the complexities of culture, isolation and activating formal and informal supports in this setting. Since working in the MST-CAN program, I have found my passion is working from a strong evidence base, that promotes working collaboratively and systemically with families. As the Clinical Supervisor, I provide clinical direction to the team, ensuring program fidelity, as well as building and maintaining relationships with our agency partners. I am proud to work for a program that aligns with the organisational goal of improving outcomes for Aboriginal children and their families.
