I started volunteering for the Emotional Support Project at Mind in Haringey in 2017 as an Administrator…Early 2019 I became a part of the Haringey Wellbeing Network as an Administrator, two days a week… I have been offered and completed a wide range of training that has enabled me to work at Mind in Haringey and its community. To be able to assist people along the mental health journey, being part of the team at Mind in Haringey, as well as becoming a paid member of staff has been a privilege.
