Our Trustees have ultimate responsibility for the charity, its assets and activities.
We have a diverse board of Trustees who are leaders in their individual fields, who are appointed because of their commitment to mental health and their experience and skills which enable them to undertake the responsibilities of trusteeship of a professional and complex charity. They ensure we make the best use of the funds we receive and continue to carry out world-class research and activities, exclusively in pursuance of our charitable objectives. They play a vital role in ensuring the proper procedures and policies are in place to manage the charity’s resources effectively, provide long-term vision and protect our reputation and values.
