New Tweddle pilot delivers hope

When a baby or toddler is living in a chaotic, complex environment due to their parent’s mental health, they need someone to step in for them. So does the parent. It takes skilled and committed people to work with some of the most vulnerable families in our community. Tweddle employs a team of clinicians whose job it is to step in. Louise Gawler has recently started at Tweddle as their High Risk Program Manager to launch a pilot program, the Home Parenting Education Support program or HoPES. Louise, a Registered Nurse and Midwife with a BSc (Hons) in Child & Family Health, is currently completing a Masters of Infant Mental Health. She has worked with vulnerable families across Australia and overseas for over 25 years. Here, Louise speaks about Tweddle's new HoPES pilot program.
