A Jersey charity that focuses on using education to help people with their mental health difficulties has appointed an HR specialist as its new Chair.
Teresa Lamy, who was one of 130 islanders involved in Jersey Recovery College’s design, is a retired professional with more than 20 years' experience in leadership roles.
"Having led the people strategy of large organisations for many years I have had a professional connection with mental health issues for a long time,” Ms Lamy said.
“From struggling in everyday life to managing a serious mental illness, I know that the impact of life events can often be devastating and I'm excited to be able to give my time to a charity in an area that I am passionate about."
JRC has also recently appointed four new Directors, who join its existing five-strong Board in a voluntary capacity: Jonathan Wilkinson, Jacqui Richards, Niall Doran and Anny Bodenstein.
They join vice chair Jake Bowley, Simon Milner, Georgina Cook, Phil Brown and Kate Kirk on a voluntary basis working alongside the JRC core team headed by Executive Officer, Beth Moore.
