Denise Carroll

Meet Trustee Denise

Before it merged with West Sussex Mind, I was the Chair of the Corner House in Southwick as well as being on the Board of Shoreham and District Mental Health Association. This has given me the experience of working for and with the community to ensure our services best meet their needs.

I have had a varied life with varied responsibilities, all of which have provided me with the skills and experience I can utilise as a trustee at West Sussex Mind.

I have experienced mental health problems within my family, including the saddening loss of a suicide. I understand how people feel when a loved one is struggling, and I am determined to help those who need it.

I am particularly passionate about the mental health of young people. I feel there is more that can be done to support people who are struggling with mental health and who may not have a strong support network around them. Improvements have been made over the years but I am passionate about ensuring these services become the best they can be.
