As the Education & Training Manager I am responsible for leading on the delivery of SYEDA's education programme by working with young people in schools, colleges, universities and various community settings. I also manage our training programme, which delivers an eclectic range of sessions for professionals across South Yorkshire and South Humberside.
Supporting those who are vulnerable and who are affected by mental health problems is one of my biggest passions. My career to date has been spent working in the voluntary sector, with the last 4.5 years spent in mental health services. As the newest member of the Syeda team, I am looking forward to reaching more young people and developing links with other services to make a difference to those who may be at risk of developing or who are experiencing early signs of an eating disorder.
