I work for Mental Health Foundation, the UK's leading charity for mental health prevention.

After a decade working on Scottish and EU policy, campaigns and research, two years ago I took on a challenging UK wide role combining leadership of our workplace mental health programmes and our corporate fundraising partnerships.

I have a particular interest in digital technology and mental health/distress, and in mindfulness.

I am proud to use my personal experience of mental ill health to inform my work. Social justice in mental health is what gets me going. In my own time I tweet on mental health, co-production, technology and mental health.

I was a founder member of the RSE Young Academy of Scotland, an organisation created by the Royal Society of Edinburgh to foster interdisciplinary activities between emerging leaders in different fields.

I am a part time photographer, and i’ve kept a photo a day journal on Blipfoto for over eight years. I am very interested in the potential for photography to promote mental health.

I’m a parent of two, a reasonable cook and an enthusiastic singer.
