Mr Gareth Furber
I completed my clinical psychology PhD in 2006 in the area of psychological recovery following heart attack. My PhD provided me with a strong grounding in research and evaluation skills, as well as clinical training in cognitive-behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and motivational interviewing.

The bulk of my work to-date has been in the area of child and adolescent mental health, and has included clinical work as well as research. My main research focus has been on modelling the workforce requirements to build an effective child and adolescent mental health sector.

I currently work full-time as an e-Mental Health Project Officer within Health, Counselling and Disability Services at Flinders University. In my role, I write and talk about how students can enhance their wellbeing and productivity.

I am a co-manager of an online network for mental health professionals in South Australia called the Psychology and Health Forum (
