Meet Trustee Brian

I became a trustee of Worthing and Arun Mind in 2010 because of my strong interest in mental health issues and my concern at the way these illnesses were seen as different to, and less important than, physical illness. My career prior to retirement from the NHS had laid the foundations for my involvement with Mind. I became chair of Worthing and Arun Mind in July 2011 which I was proud to do until we merged with Chichester Area in December 2013.

Creating a new community hub for mental health services in Worthing, merging with other organisations and growing to meet the challenges ahead has been a key goal for me. My particular interests as a trustee are in corporate governance, public involvement, public and community relations and in creating strong links between trustees and the communities we serve.
