Imogen  

I am currently working in an NHS mental health service and studying psychology. I also volunteer for a crisis messaging service in my spare time. I am keen to break the stigma behind mental health conditions. From both personal and professional experiences, I have recognised that there is limited mental health support available for young people, particularly due to the long waiting lists and lack of funding. I feel passionately about taking action to increase this mental health support so both children and their families don’t have to battle it alone. Looking after our mental health as well as raising awareness have never been more important. It is therefore vital that everyone feels able to speak out and ask for help. 
 

Shamilla  

I have a background of working in early years for over 10 years and am now a qualified social worker working with children and families.  
I am passionate about children and young people - I believe that everyone has a right to be kept safe and receive appropriate care, be that medically, emotionally and in any environment they are accessing. 
I have a keen interest in the impacts that trauma has on our children and young people and how we can effectively support them to access the right level of care. 
I know first hand how challenging, isolating and scary mental ill health can be and I believe our children deserve to be given a chance to be mentally and physically well and to live a full, balanced and happy life.
