Helen is a qualified solicitor and mother, and has lived and worked as a solicitor in Dorset since 2007. She enjoys the great outdoors and tries to go running, swimming, surfing and hiking whenever she can.
Helen has a particular interest in mental health having lost her brother-in-law to suicide in 2017. She witnessed first-hand the devastating impact mental health issues can have on an individual and their family. Helen joined Dorset Mind as a Trustee as she wants to do something to help increase awareness, breakdown social taboos and make support more accessible. This is particularly difficult when depression can make someone feel unmotivated and helpless.
