Are you interested in contributing to the work of Health in Mind, a mental health and wellbeing charity based in Edinburgh, working across Scotland? Health in Mind strive for people in Scotland to live in a supportive and resilient community where mental health is understood and people lead fulfilling lives. We work together to deliver trauma support and training, counselling and talking therapies, and early intervention community based support.

We are seeking new volunteer Board Directors to help us deliver our vision.

Health in Mind Board meets six times a year, via video conferencing or in Edinburgh and is supported by a number of focussed committees, currently meeting quarterly by video conference.

We are currently seeking applications from people who have lived experience of mental health difficulties, health and social care, finance or other relevant expertise and experience. You don’t need to have been on a Board before- we offer a full induction and ongoing learning and development opportunities.

We are committed to reflecting the communities we serve and would particularly welcome applications from people who are currently under-represented on our Board, including disabled people, those from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic communities and people aged under 50.
