Connie Digolis, Peak Body

CEO, Mental Health Council of Tasmania

Connie Digolis is the CEO of the Mental Health Council of Tasmania (MHCT). Prior to that, Connie was Executive Officer for the National Stroke Foundation in Tasmania. Connie brings to her role a wealth of experience in community sector management, advocacy, health promotion and policy.

The Mental Health Council of Tasmania is the peak body for the community mental health sector and is working with its members to develop a sector reform agenda that will deliver better outcomes for those living with mental illness in Tasmania and their families.

Connie would like to see a Tasmania that is forward thinking and innovative in the mental health sector. Connie looks forward to a time when we can refer to our mental health system as an excellent example of person-centred, integrated care that provides the best mental health outcomes for all Tasmanians.
