Today we’re thrilled to share with our supporters that there are a number of new faces on the Student Minds’ trustee board. Our trustee board plays a vital role in enabling us to achieve the charity's objectives - providing accountability, oversight and robust governance to help us achieve our goals.
Student Minds’ board is made up of a mixture of experts from across the charity, higher education, business and health care sectors. With a diverse range of experiences, our board of ten have expertise and knowledge in HR, law, finance, fundraising, mental health, education and beyond.
About the new appointments to the board, Rosie Tressler, CEO of Student Minds commented:
“As we continue to grow and move towards our 10th year of operating, we recognised that now is the ideal time for us to expand and bring in new skills and expertise. We are delighted that the board have appointed five new trustees with a range of skills and experiences and a strong commitment to our aims. Our Chair, Dr Nicola Byrom and I would like to extend a warm welcome to Brian Rock, Jaki Booth, Natasha Devon, Sue Rigby and Victoria Goddard. Together with our existing trustee board members they will help us think long term and strategically about how we best continue our efforts transform the state of student mental health.”
We’d also like to take the opportunity to thank Seb Baird for his wide ranging contributions to Student Minds as his term on the board comes to an end. Seb has brought his passion for mental health to Student Minds in his roles first as a graduate advisor on projects and as a board member where he has helped shape our approaches to digital literacy and storytelling. We wish Seb all the best in his next adventures.
