“I am thrilled to have been granted the opportunity to become a Governor” 

I am a mental health advocate and student mental health nurse, with lived experience of HPFT CAMHS and adult services, in both inpatient and community settings.

I wanted to be a governor because I believe the Trust needs to include the voice of young people, and I am passionate about being part of the Trust developing. I am part of the CAMHS Young People's Council, an under-represented group. By representing the wider voice of young people, I enable a feedback cycle. I believe that allowing young people to have a voice within the Council of Governors enables the Trust to flourish and improves communication and feedback.

Having good 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.
