Fay Jackson
CEO of Vision In Mind and recently appointed Deputy Commissioner for Mental Health, NSW Mental Health Commission

Fay Jackson had her first permanent job at the age of 40. She had been told by three different psychiatrists over the years that "You will never have a career and you will never be a contributing member of society". She believed them and was a victim to her bipolar. Then she gained a job as a two day per week advocate in a Mental Health service. This launched her passion and career in making a difference in mental health. Within two years she became a director of the service. She then went on to establish her business, Vision In Mind, and has been a Deputy Commissioner of the NSW Mental Health Commission since March 2013. https://nswmentalhealthcommission.com.au/our-people/deputy-commissioners/fay-jackson.
