I have lived experience of mental distress and support my daughter who is on the autistic spectrum. I became a carer rep after my daughter suffered injustice from a mental health team
I am involved in activities, including Care and Treatment Planning training for mental health professionals and being on a recovery steering committee. Like many others I was supported by West Wales Action for Mental Health. and felt compelled to work with others to campaign for more humane mental health services and greater understanding of n euro diversity and mental health. I am involved in activities including Care and Treatment training for mental health professionals and being on a recovery steering committee.

I have been a rep for six years and am passionate about coproduction, patient leadership, ending all coercive practice and promoting grass roots peer support of all kinds.
