    Director, Clinical Programs

    Liz Burgat is the Director, Clinical Programs with responsibility for the operations of the four headspace centres operated by Orygen in Sunshine, Glenroy, Werribee and Craigieburn.

    Liz is driven by a desire to strive for better outcomes for young people with mental illness and believes early intervention treatments, advocacy and youth, strengthening community partnerships, and family participation are central to making a difference and reducing stigma.

    She has worked in both clinical and management settings within the public health systems in Victoria, Western Australia and England. Liz has also worked in national private health care and more recently within the community service sector in the areas of disability, out of home care, homelessness and aged care.

    Joining Orygen’s Clinical Services team has further strengthened Liz’s strong desire to contribute to systematic service reform leading to better outcomes for young people.
