“I am 16 and I am thrilled to have been granted the opportunity to become a Governor”
I’m currently doing my A-Levels and I plan to study Clinical Psychology at university. I wanted to be a governor because I believe the Trust needs to include the voice of youth. I have lived experience of HPFT services, both through inpatient and community settings, and I am passionate about being part of the Trust growing and improving.
I am part of the CAMHS Youth Council, an under-represented group. By representing the wider voice of young people, I enable a feedback cycle. I believe that allowing the youth to have a voice within the Council of Governors, enables the Trust to flourish and improves communication and feedback.
A positive mental health is fundamental for people’s wellbeing, and I love being a part of improving our services for those who need it. I feel the Trust’s values of being welcoming, kind, positive, respectful and professional are extremely important.
