To close off the year, we are releasing a special pre-recorded Peak Speaks episode – ‘Open Dialogue within the Australian Mental Health Sector.’

We’re excited to be hosting two insightful panelists from the Open Dialogue Centre to discuss the core outcomes and values of Open Dialogue and identify the systemic factors that support this recovery approach within Australia.Β 

Shubhangi Kaushik – Shubhangi is Head of Partnerships and Programs at the Open Dialogue Centre, and a registered psychologist. She has extensive experience working across various verticals of the government and non-government mental health sectors in Australia and New Zealand, at strategic and grass-root levels, with diverse groups and populations, and both in one-on-one and group settings. Her areas of expertise include working with organisations and providing consultation on strategic vision, service design, development, implementation and delivery, and project and change management.

Shubhangi is committed to enhancing the voice of lived experience and creating mental health services that are holistic and recognise the value of positive connection. She has a specific interest in organisational change and mental health system reform and is not afraid to challenge the status quo to achieve this.

Mark Hopfenbeck – Mark has been involved in the world of Open Dialogue internationally for the past 20 years as a trainer and a researcher. He is also co-investigator for the largest randomised control trial into Open Dialogue currently underway in the NHS. Earlier this year, Mark moved to Melbourne and has been working closely with the Open Dialogue Centre since in promoting Open Dialogue across Australia.

We will be releasing this episode on Thursday, December 21st, so don’t forget to set a reminder in your calendar!
