Commissioner

Christine Jones
Christine has been a lawyer for three decades practising in family law, and domestic and family violence. Her focus continues to be alternative dispute resolution, where she works with families, organisations and communities experiencing conflict. Her work extends to specialised areas of restorative and therapeutic justice in matters involving abuse and violence. She has a long-standing commitment to the not-for-profit sector, and has a voluntary position in an organisation supporting people with a lived experience in mental health. Christine considers herself fortunate to be an educator in multidisciplinary approaches to human services practice, given the importance of the sector to the development of a strong and resilient community.

Acknowledgement of Country

The Commission acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands throughout Australia.
We pay our respects to their clans, and to the elders, past present and emerging, and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community.

Diversity

The Commission is committed to embracing diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination in the provision of health services. The Commission welcomes all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choice, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Lived Experience

We acknowledge the individual and collective contributions of those with a lived and living experience of mental ill-health and suicide, and those who love, have loved and care for them. Each person’s journey is unique and a valued contribution to Australia’s commitment to mental health suicide prevention systems reform.
