I began working in mental health in 1979, and qualified as a Registered Mental Nurse in 1984. I have worked in a range of residential, hospital and community settings, and have held my current post as a Mental Health Adviser at Bangor University since November, 2004, offering practically-focused mental health advice, guidance and support to students and staff across the organisation.
I have attended many courses, conferences, and workshops as part of my continuing professional development, including, in my current role, the ASIST training course, and Suicide Awareness & Emotional Resilience Training the Trainer course
I continually work towards the removal of stigma, and barriers to full participation in education and society generally, as well as the promotion of health, mental health, sustainability, and equality of opportunity and esteem.
I work alongside my colleague, Cheryl Parkinson, and between us we offer a service to support students within Bangor University -Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.
