Tena Koutou Katoa,

My name is Charmaine Gibbs. I come from a social work background, having worked in the Lower Hutt region for 14 years. I worked for Kokiri Marae Social Services, Seaview for 2 years, and 12 years for the then Ministry of Social Development Child, Youth and Family Services as a Care and Protection Social Worker.

While I have never worked in the area of mental health and addiction I do bring life experience and social work ethics into this role. I am familiar with other social service organisations throughout the Lower Hutt region and the support offered in the community.

I look forward to one day meeting all the services associated with Oasis Network Inc. in the near future.

Kia Ora. I started getting interested in working in the mental health field as a teenager after I gave a talk about experiencing mental ill health to families. Since then I have worked on the Like Minds Like Mine campaign to counter stigma and discrimination as a speaker and a consumer advisor, and at Atareira (mental health support form family/whanau) doing mental health education in schools and in the community. Recently I have also worked for Buddies Peer Support Service at Wellington Hospital. Working at Oasis as a peer support worker has been enjoyable and uplifting through all the peers I have had the privilege to meet and relate to.

Hi everyone. I have been working as a peer support worker for just over one year. Before that I was a volunteer for 4 ½ years.

Before that I worked at a variety of volunteer and paid part time jobs through the Earthlink programme which gave me skills and helped me regain the confidence I had lost due to unemployment.

We have a great sense of community at Oasis and working here gives me a great sense of satisfaction.
