LAMP (Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project) provides advocacy support for mental health patients and their carers in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, helping them to access services, advice, information and training.
Sue said she was delighted to be joining an organisation supporting people with mental health issues and raising awareness of the problems sufferers face.
New CEO said: “Mental health remains a growing issue. A lot more people are recognising they do have mental health issues and we don’t want them to feel they have to suffer alone, without a voice.
“It’s quite evident that more people are accessing the service. It’s also evident that now, one in six people who are working experience mental health problems.”
