Governor's Personal Statement

Hazel is a former psychiatric nurse who has a frontal lobe brain injury which has caused other conditions. Hazel believes that as a former nurse and now service user she is in a unique position to see things from both sides. She currently volunteers as an Expert by Experience for Mental Health Together. Hazel is aware that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on many people’s mental health which in turn is likely to impact on demand for services. Hazel is keen to use her experience and skills to help move mental health services forward in a safe, therapeutic and supportive environment for both staff and patients.
