Hi, I originally came as a volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Society and was impressed by what I saw and joined Metal in May 2016 as a full-time volunteer for NetPark Wellbeing. I have always lived in Southend-on-Sea and have 25 years of living with personal mental health concerns. As part of my recovery, I engaged with the therapeutic art classes being delivered at NetPark Wellbeing. I am now a paid member of the team and have won numerous awards for both my work as an individual and as part of the NetPark Wellbeing team. I am a philo-semite and enjoy learning/reading about Jewish culture. My favourite author is Franz Kafka, and my favourite singer is David Sylvian.
