It is with much sadness that Wellways Board, Management and Staff mark the passing of Jackie Crowe over the weekend. Our thoughts are with her husband and children at this sad time.

Jackie was a Mental Health Commissioner and an influential figure in the mental health community across Australia. She brought the consumer and carer voice to the task at hand and represented those with lived experience of mental health issues with insight and compassion.

Laura Collister, Director Mental Health said “Jackie was a member of the Wellways Consumer and Carer Committee and was always full of integrity and was uncompromising in her advocacy.”

Chief Executive Elizabeth Crowther said “The wise counsel and the lived experience perspective she brought to our work will be sorely missed by all her colleagues.”

The Wellways Helpline is open from 9am until 9pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) and can provide support if required. Please call 1300 111 500.
