"I believe strongly in the value of all efforts to reduce the stigma associated with mental health"
I live in Hertfordshire, and I am a father of two. Up until May 2019, I have been both a Commissioner for mental health services in Hertfordshire, and a Programme Manager for mental health and learning disabilities in Hertfordshire and West Essex.
Having a partnership role across the health and social care system, I draw from a broad range of knowledge, experience and relationships to help improve experiences and outcomes for service users. Mental health is everyone’s business.
I believe strongly in the value of all efforts to reduce the stigma associated with mental health and have grown over recent years to be able to share my own lived experience and normalise the discussion.
