Commissioner Lucy Brogden has been announced as a winner in The Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Awards for 2015. Ms Brogden has been recognised in the public policy category for her continued contribution to the work of the National Mental Health Commission.

The 100 Women of Influence Awards seek to recognise and highlight the profound ways influential women are driving change to create a more diverse future in Australia.

The Commission congratulates Ms Brogden on this achievement.  “Lucy’s tireless contribution and passion to helping others and building stronger communities is at the core of the Commission’s work.  Her outstanding leadership and support, in particular, on the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance, which encourages workplaces to become mentally healthy, is commendable” said CEO David Butt.

Ms Brogden said she was extremely grateful to be recognised as a woman of influence in 2015. “It’s an honour and privilege working with the Commission to enable people with lived experience of mental health issues, their families and supporters to live a contributing life.”

The Category winners and overall winner will be announced – Thursday, 15 October 2015 at a gala event held in Sydney’s Town Hall.
