Hi, my name is Keith and I am a Public Governor for the Trust. The area I represent is South Yorkshire and the rest of the East Midlands.
One of my main areas of interest as a Governor is to represent children and young people.
I retired from the Trust in December 2014 after having worked in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for 15 years.
One of my reasons for standing as a Governors was to improve the involvement of young people and to help them have a voice in the Trust.
Since becoming a Governor, with the help of the a colleague, we arranged a meeting where five young people, service users and ex-service users, met with the Trust Chairman. Our next objective is to help the young people set up a Youth forum.
These may only be small steps, but every great journey begins with a small step.
If you are aged 12 or over, you can become a member of the Trust and help us achieve greatness on our journey. Visit the Trust website to find out how!
