Meet the presenter: 

In 2010, Susan McCormack understood the uniqueness of perspectives, and how ones’ development, history, environment, and genetics influences the success of rehabilitation. To facilitate positive outcomes, for our clients, I have developed academic, and experiential knowledge to understand the complexities of mental health, psychosocial other and comorbidities.  Also, developing professional knowledge of attrition and poor attendance, Susan is currently undertaking a research PhD, exploring attitudes to help seeking behaviour of veterans.  Susan has completed an MProf in Health Care at the University of Chester & master’s in counselling, Psychology Honor’s, Prestigious Award in leadership at the University of Manchester.

Susan is keen the skills she developed over the years to explore mental and physical health interventions designed and informed by service users. While the focus remains to alleviate immediate distress, the work at Mode Rehabilitation developed to include the Armed Forces Community, since exploring longer-term solutions that could prevent difficulties from emerging, such as isolation, drug dependency, homelessness, and suicide. This includes the role of families, carers, communities, and the society overall in supporting and promoting positive mental health.  Susan founded the charity in 2014, inspired by a mutual interest in the interplay of mental health and social hardship. The desire to create a credible charity that marries together novel, innovative mental health interventions accompanied by research with ambitious, grassroots community projects, included co-founding Project RECCE. Susan along with a team of professionals with an incredible story of resilience designed and disseminated the ‘Resilience to Civilian Life’ Spearheading a widely applied, successful intervention to support veterans in the construction industry.
