ANZMHA Podcast: Dr Faye McMillan AM

Cultural, spiritual, and social wellbeing are integral components to Indigenous people, who take a holistic approach to mental health. Tailored, community-led approaches have seen huge advances in Indigenous social and emotional wellbeing, and this week, we are proud to have with us a leader in the field, Australia’s first registered Aboriginal Pharmacist, Associate Professor Dr Faye McMillan AM.

In 2019 she was named as the NSW Aboriginal Woman of the year; in 2017 she was recognised in the Who's Who of Australian Women; and in 2014 she was included in the Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 women of influence.

Faye holds a Doctor of Health Science, Master of Indigenous Health Bachelor of Pharmacy, Graduate Certificate Wiradjuri Language, Culture and Heritage, Graduate Certificate Indigenous Governance, and Graduate Certificate in Education.
