Jeff Cheverton, former Deputy CEO of Brisbane North PHN and more recently in leadership at the North Western Melbourne PHN unexpectedly passed away last week. ConNetica worked closely with Jeff during his time at Brisbane North PHN. John Mendoza also worked with Jeff at Mental Health Council of Australia, when Jeff served as a Board member in 2005-6. This was a time of unprecedented new investment in community mental health following the release of the Not for Service report in October 2005. We wish to express our sincere condolences to his Family and loved ones.
Jeff was an influential and esteemed advocate for health and social justice in the Australian community and will be sorely missed. You can read more about Jeff in a statement from Brisbane North PHN, and in lieu of flowers and to help support Jeff's family in this time you can contribute to Jeff's GoFundMe page.
