Brief Description of Work: I have been working in the field of mental health for 10 years. This includes facilitating the Bristol co-production group, exploring assessment and values-based practice. I also have an interest in the mental health experiences of people from Black and Minority Ethnic groups and I have played a key role in community engagement projects. I am a yoga practitioner and meditator with an interest in exploring how yoga and mindfulness are integrated in mental health systems, and how eastern philosophy expands understanding of the mind and mental well-being.
