National Allied Health Awards Winner from Country Tasmania
Tracey Martin-Cole, Founding Director of Psychology CAFFE – along with her passionate team of mental health professionals in our NW town of Latrobe, was recently nominated as finalist in the Psychologist of the Year category, and her team were nominated as finalists in the Australian Allied Health Awards for both Allied Health Paediatric Team Excellence, AND the Allied Health Adult Team Excellence awards.
WON the National Allied Health Paediatric Team Excellence award
This is outstanding recognition of their excellence in the private sector in mental health. With long waiting lists, higher demand, and a very challenging recruitment environment to meet the increased need exacerbated by COVID-19, our local services continue to shine. This is despite the challenges and the strain on resources, and the substantial toll on the health of the community, and the health professionals themselves, alongside a history of intergenerational trauma and high levels of community distress.
The winners of the Australian Allied Health Awards were announced at the annual national Gala dinner – which was set to be in Sydney at Darling Harbour on Saturday the 25th of September – however, as with many events this was a Virtual GALA Event, and so the team had a cocktail evening to celebrate in Latrobe with their colleagues across the country who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic, and numerous shutdowns, including here in northwest Tasmania.
Psychology CAFFE has an outstanding reputation for clinical excellence, and the practice values and supports connection within the team to better sustain and support the community through a whole family approach, working to change children’s lives for the better one child and family at a time.
In addition to one-on-one and family services, Psychology CAFFE hosts community forums, and is deeply committed to advocacy, workforce development and training to build capacity for mental health in the region. In the near future they will provide a panel fundraiser for mental health in the community, and we continue to work hard to build our region’s health and wellbeing.
