#34 - Perinatal Mental Health with Dr Nicole Highet

We All Wear It Differently - A Podcast for Early Career Psychologists

Dr Nicole Highet is a clinical psychologist and the Founder & Executive Director at COPE: Centre of Perinatal Excellence.  Previously Nicole worked at Beyond Blue as the Deputy CEO and National Perinatal Advisor. Nicole has a Doctorate in clinical psychology specialising in community approaches to treating postnatal depression.  After her training she moved from Perth to Melbourne, and detoured into the world of marketing and advertising. The combination her clinical and marketing skills ended up being the perfect stepping stone for her to join Beyondblue in 2001, just after the Initiative began. Beyond Blue is an Australian, independent non-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related mental disorders. Nicole worked with beyond Blue fore 12 years. One of her most passionate endeavours at Beyond Blue was the success of the National Perinatal Depression Initiative. In response to this issue and the need for a dedicated focus in perinatal mental health, Nicole established COPE, Centre of Perinatal Excellence. In this episode we discuss iCOPE - an interactive, digital screening platform that facilitates efficient and effective screening in the perinatal period (during pregnancy and year following birth). Nicole's passion is contagious, and she encourages us to think big picture and follow our passions. So let's see how we all wear it differently with Nicole Highet.
