Sarah Hughes

Chief Exec, Mind in Cambridgeshire

Sarah has been CEO of Mind in Cambridgeshire for 11 years but has managed mental health services for 23 both in secure and community settings. Originally trained as a social worker she has gone onto further study with the Tavistock and Portman Centre and is in the final year of a professional doctorate exploring the experience of CEO's of mental health organisations. Sarah has been delivering training for 15 years specialising in Understanding Mental Health, Maintaining Professional Boundaries and Personality Disorder and has been lucky enough to work internationally. Sarah also writes a blog and is enjoying being part of a positive approach to social media specifically spreading the word about mental health and defeating stigma. Added to this mix are two young children and husband who never fail to bring her back down to earth. 

I will discuss the nature of the third sector and the opportunities and obstacles involved in working closely with statutory partners. We will explore these issues in reference to my experience and the values of Promise. The brief session will end on what we can do together.
