Narelle Fraser - Speaker Presentation 'It isn't a crime to be stressed' and Dinner.

Start Date

End Date

Narelle was a member of Victoria Police for 27 years, 15 of those as a Detective with Homicide, Rape, Sex Crimes, Missing Persons & Child Exploitation Squads, specialising in sex offences & child abuse.   She has been involved in some of Victoria’s most notorious criminal investigations.

In 2012 Narelle was diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) & was never able to return to Policing, however she overcame many adversities to become an accidental mental health advocate & keynote speaker on the challenges of first responders who face trauma & grief on a daily basis.  

Narelle shares the signs of stress she ignored, hoping they would magically disappear.  Instead of disappearing, they increased to the point she couldn’t continue in the career she loved.  The stigma of mental illness is alive & well in our community & Narelle’s hope is to help in ‘normalising’ rather than stigmatising, mental illness.  

Narelle has lectured in Investigative Techniques & Human Rights @ NMIT (now Melbourne Polytechnic), Criminology & Specialist Interviewer Program @ Monash,  is a trainer with Investigator Upgrade, is a policing & mental health commentator, has appeared on television, in print, social media & radio & is a regular guest on Australian True Crime podcast series with Meshel Laurie & Emily Webb.  Narelle’s one (wo)man shows have sold out in Melbourne & there are on-going discussions for future shows & even a tv series!
