Swan Hill
03 Sep 2021

Congratulations to Kirsty Jacobs who has been appointed as the new Manager of headspace Swan Hill!

Kirsty was originally born in South Africa, grew up in Western Sydney, and joined the headspace Swan Hill team in March 2017 as a newly graduated Provisional Psychologist. Kirsty became a Registered Psychologist in early 2019 and at the end of 2019 took on the role of Senior Clinician. During this time, Kirsty supervised the rest of the headspace team, developed her leadership skills, and continued to work 1 on 1 with young people. We are extremely grateful to have worked alongside Kirsty and witnessed her personal and professional growth over the past four years!

Kirsty is such an asset to the team and the Swan Hill region. We look forward to her leadership as we continue to work together and empower the young people, their families and the wider community in this region.

The Guardian recently did an article on Kirsty's journey, which you can read here
