 If you are a caring and passionate individual who wishes to make a meaningful contribution to the governance of Waypoint, a Catholic sponsored specialized mental health hospital with 1,300 employees, we look forward to hearing from you.

As a board member your previous experience as a senior executive and as part of a public sector, not for profit or corporate Board will complement our team of skilled professionals. You will work together with the CEO and board on strategic decision making and oversight, monitoring performance, quality and risk management and ensuring sustainable operations, as well as focusing on reducing stigma and improving services through fundraising activities.
