Peter Aguto

Born in South Sudan, like so many others Peter was forced to escape from his birthplace due to the civil war and sought safety in another country. In a harrowing journey, Peter arrived in Australia in 2006 having fled through Egypt under the United Nations re-settlement, and understands the impact and life changing damage that can result from pre-migration and post-migration refugee experiences. Peter has trained as a Mental Health practitioner and with a Bachelor’s degree in Community Mental Health, Alcohol and other Drugs has continued his work as a community champion and counsellor specialising in substance abuse. Peter is passionate about helping disengaged, disadvantaged, and marginalized migrants particularly young people and their parents from refugee backgrounds who have been subjected to intense trauma.
