Following the departure of Centre for Mental Health’s chief executive Sarah Hughes, the trustees are pleased to announce that a leadership team will be formed with Andy Bell as Interim Chief Executive from December 2022.
The new leadership team will build on Sarah’s legacy to make us stronger still, implementing our five-year strategy and continuing our vital work to eradicate mental health inequalities and pursue social justice. The trustees will appoint a permanent chief executive during 2023.
The Centre’s work is more important than it has ever been. With the cost of living crisis, a recession and the aftermath of the pandemic putting people’s mental health under threat, our work is essential to challenge inequality and injustice. In 2023, we will work tirelessly to find solutions that can make a real difference in people’s lives. From our work with Young Changemakers to tackle the impacts of racism on mental health to our unique urban community show garden at RHS Chelsea, we will be a voice for social change to create better mental health for all.
Our staff team is dedicated to making a difference nationally and internationally. We’re strongly committed to our purpose. We look forward to working with all of our partners and supporters next year. Together, we know we can bring robust evidence, clear analysis and diverse voices to create a mentally healthier society for everyone.
