SUSIE HINCKS, CO-FOUNDER


Susie Hincks grew up on a farm in the South-West of Western Australia and met Maria when they were in their early twenties. Maria moved back to Europe and Susie slowly succumbed to mental illness. At the age of 28, she was finally diagnosed with schizophrenia. Fortunately, Susie responded well to a small amount of medication and moved on to become a mental health advocate. This involved speaking at schools and universities about her experience with mental illness in order to educate and inform people. She has been a Consumer Representative for the Centre for Clinical Research in Neuropsychiatry at Graylands Hospital in Perth, Western Australia.
