Matt Davies

Matt spent time working as a sworn officer within the Western Australia Police Force prior to relocating to Tasmania for family reasons. In between leaving the police and commencing with the Tasmanian Department of Justice, he decided to complete a Degree in Psychology.

After working across various portfolios at Justice he had the opportunity to take up a role supporting first responders as part of the Wellbeing Support Team within DPFEM and now Co-manages the Critical Incident Stress Management Team.

Matt has seen first-hand the effects that mental health issues can have on both the individual and their families involved as well as the wider community and is passionate about working towards better outcomes across the board.
