I qualified as a nurse in 1996 and from there had a varied career, most recently in school health. During my 12 years as a school staff nurse I dealt more and more with mental health issues and worked with schools and college's around setting careplans. This helped to enable students to continue their education with appropriate support in place. It is this work that I hope to transfer to Mind.
