Jace Cannon-Brookes

Jace is a leading clinical psychologist, trauma specialist, mental health innovator and co-founder of Birchtree Group. 

She has worked as a clinician across private and public health settings. Her work has included treatment of eating disorders, acute and general psychiatry and bereavement services.

Jace initially trained as a Registered Nurse and worked primarily in mental health and treatment programs for drug and alcohol addiction. Prior to opening Birchtree, Jace worked for 14 years as a psychologist within drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres, where she designed and co-ordinated a six-week residential rehabilitation program, with a focus on the treatment of complex trauma for women with histories of substance dependence.

She has completed intensive Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) training and subsequently co-ordinated the implementation of a 12 month out-patient DBT program. Jace has developed and delivered education programs to health services, NGO’s, professional colleagues, and lectured at the University of Sydney, UNSW and UTS within the postgraduate Clinical Psychology programs.

In 2018, Jace co-founded Birchtree Foundation as a charity in response to recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, to address the inequity in the availability of treatment services in rural and regional Australia.

Jace doesn’t accept the status quo and is loudly determined to (courageously) improve Australia’s mental health for the benefit of all. Innately a collaborator and connector, Jace invites others to join forces with the Birchtree team in reshaping Australia’s mental health system.
