Cherie Wallace

Senior Project Officer Trauma Informed Preventative Care, RCH

Cherie has been a Registered Nurse for 22 years, including working at the RCH for 15 years, 4 years working abroad in the Middle East and much of her nursing career working in the Emergency Department where I worked in all roles within the department. I spent 2.5 years working as a Clinical Nurse Consultant with Comfort Kids supporting, advising and educating staff, children and families in procedural pain management and sedation. Since becoming a mother I have worked in the Short stay unit at RCH and more recently in the Day Medical Unit.

Cherie has a passion for improving/acknowledging and supporting the mental health of children, families and staff - it really is everyone's business. Her belief and hope is that the Strategy can deliver and embed a Trauma Informed Preventative Care model into The RCH.

At Mental Health Central we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live, gather and work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

We acknowledge all people with a lived or living experience of mental ill-health and recovery. At the Campus, we particularly acknowledge children, young people, families, carers, and supporters. We recognise their vital contribution and value the courage of those who share this unique perspective for the purpose of learning and growing together to achieve better outcomes for the Campus, staff, sector, and all people of lived experience.
