We are lucky to have as part of our broader partner network clinical psychologist and disaster preparedness and recovery expert David Younger.
In 2009, the Victorian Black Saturday bushfires came close to where he was living and working, and as a result he became deeply involved in treating and supporting survivors.
David is a clinical psychologist with over 16 years’ experience in private practice. In his work as a natural disaster and emergency recovery consultant, David partners with communities, agencies, as well as local and state government across Australia.
He has been a trusted advisor after numerous events including bushfires, floods, droughts, cyclones, the 2017 Bourke Street tragedy, thunderstorm asthma, and COVID-19.
David is well known to many in disaster preparedness and recovery, understanding the impacts of trauma and pathways through.
We thank David for being part of our advisory team.
