Claire Ovaska

Claire Ovaska is Senior Liaison Librarian for the Research Division at James Cook University. She is dedicated to improving learning and teaching outcomes for students and supporting academic staff research.

Claire completed Mental Health First Aid training in 2016 and was (naively) surprised at how often she has since drawn on this training. Claire has assimilated that ‘mental health is everyone’s business’ and wants to see improved mental health outcomes for staff and students in higher education. Claire has been actively involved with AMHHEC since 2018.
