I’ve been running the organisation since 2002 and have seen many changes. I work with the Board on strategy and policy and oversee our services and activities. I’ve recently added a more hands on role as a Self- Management Training facilitator. Outside of work I’m a Girls’ Brigade leader and support Glasgow Warriors rugby.
I’ve been working with Bipolar Scotland since 2015 and a lot of my work focuses on supporting our self-help groups. I recruit and train facilitators, find venues, publicise the groups and start up two new groups per year. I cycle and write history books in my spare time.
I joined the team in 2016 and raise funds for self-help groups and Self-Management Training courses through a range of community and other events so if you’ve got any ideas, please get in touch! When I’m not working you’ll find me hanging out with my family in the Cairngorms paddle boarding or snowboarding depending on the season!
I volunteered for Bipolar Scotland before becoming an Administrator in 2016. I deal with email and telephone enquiries and update the membership database. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 1989.
I am the newest member to Bipolar Scotland. I have worked within the Mental Health Sector for the past ten years in both NHS and charity. I have recently moved back home from England where I spent three and half years working for MIND. My role within Bipolar Scotland is to assist with development and training. I would love to hear from you if you have any ideas and would like to get involved. In my spare time I enjoy travelling to experience different cultures.
