Jo (she/her)

Meet EDI panel member, Jo, a former employee at West Sussex Mind, who wants to challenge stigma and discrimination around mental health

I was an employee at West Sussex Mind for ten years and prior to that I worked in teaching and nursing. I have lived experience of mental health and as a result of this have experienced stigma and discrimination in both my personal and professional life.

I am very passionate about promoting positive mental health and am keen to advocate greater awareness and a change in society’s attitudes and beliefs, so that we can support everyone despite the challenges they may have experienced.

I hope that by being an active member of this panel, I can continue to support West Sussex Mind to co-produce change and make our hopes and aspirations a reality.
