Former Mission Australia State Leader NSW Metro, Dr Evelyne Tadros has been announced as the new CEO to run the peak body for community mental health organisations.
During the course of her career, Evelyne’s work has benefited thousands of individuals and families by developing and implementing a range of quality homelessness, mental health, housing, drug and alcohol, disability, child, youth and employment programs.
Evelyne brings a wealth of governance, compliance and leadership experience from her role as former Chair Homelessness NSW and current positions as St John Ambulance Board Director and on the Risk, Governance and Nominations Committee with St Vincent de Paul Society (NSW).
Evelyne said she is humbled and delighted to be joining MHCC and to work with its members and those with lived experience of mental health conditions on reform and service improvements.
“I am fuelled by my desire to make a difference and passionate and committed to sustainably empower individuals to thrive and flourish. This in turn will boost community managed organisations and the work they do to support people with lived experience of mental health conditions.”
MHCC Chair Judi Higgin said Evelyne brings great energy and experience to the role and she looks forward to the strong leadership and passion she will bring to the sector.
Please join us in welcoming Dr Evelyne Tadros to this pivotal role. We are thrilled to have her on board and look forward to continuing to work with our members and sector to improve the lives of people living with mental health conditions.
