John Mendoza




Guest Speaker John Mendoza, Former Executive Mental Health Director for the RAH


John Mendoza is a leading mental health and suicide prevention expert, senior executive, academic and advocate. His most recent position at  Central Adelaide Hospital Network and Prison Health SA, where he was responsible for provision of mental health services to 40% of South Australia’s population, led more than 1,000 staff and managed a budget of nearly $165m demonstrates his commitment to quality care and protection of human rights. Speaking publicly to expose the parlous state of mental health service provision and failure of the state’s most senior health bureaucrats to address systemic issues and urgently needed change led to his recent termination.


John has held other executive positions including:

  • founding Director of ConNetica (mental health and suicide prevention social enterprise)
  • CEO of the Mental Health Council of Australia
  • CEO of the Australian Sports Drug Agency
  • South Australia’s representative on the National Campaign Against Drug Abuse Steering Committee and
  • Inaugural Chair of the National Advisory Council on Mental Health.


He is presently Adj. Professor in Health and Sports Science University of the Sunshine Coast and Adj. Associate Professor, Brain and Mind Centre, University of Sydney.
