Dominic Goodeve

Meet trustee Dominic

I have struggled with my own mental health for as long as I can remember. I have accessed numerous services over the years and have experienced many ups and downs along my journey towards mental health recovery. Though that journey is ongoing, I am proud to have found a career where my experiences are valued and not a cause for stigma.

I have worked in frontline mental health services and behind the scenes of the charity sector. I am currently employed by disability charity, Independent Lives, as their head of marketing, communications and engagement.

I am exceptionally proud to have joined West Sussex Mind as a trustee and through my career have crossed paths with them on several occasions. I have always been struck by the quality of West Sussex Mind’s services and the dedication and hard work of their staff and volunteers.

As someone with lived experience of poor mental health, I understand the importance of access to quality mental health support. Through my role as a trustee for West Sussex Mind, I hope to play an active role in promoting awareness and advocating for mental health services that are inclusive and accessible to all. It is a meaningful way for me to use my experiences to help others and contribute to a cause that is close to my heart.
