Adah Parris, Chair, MHFA England added:
“I am delighted to welcome Charlotte, Andy, Sandi, Karim and Tom, our new non-executive directors, to the MHFA England Board. Each bring a wealth of experience, insight and knowledge that I know will be invaluable to supporting us move forward with our vision and mission, particularly as we face into the challenges and opportunities resulting from a global pandemic.
“Throughout the pandemic we have remained resolute in our commitment to supporting organisations who are prioritising employee mental health but we recognise that we are moving into unchartered territory and this will require us to be more informed and focused than ever before. I am confident that our new NEDs will guide and support us on the next stage of our journey and play a key role in helping us achieve our mission to train one in ten people in mental health knowledge and skills.”

“I would like to thank everyone who took the time to apply for a NED position, we had an incredible pool of people to choose from and the final decision was a hard one. I hope that those who applied remain our allies and will remain passionate with their support of MHFA England and mental health advocacy.”
