My name is Lucy and I am a proud ambassador for Dorset Mind.
I originally joined Dorset Mind as a social media and marketing assistant during my placement year for my degree. I’ve continued as an ambassador since achieving my degree in psychology a year ago. I have since found employment as an assistant psychologist on a personality disorder ward in a mental health hospital. I plan to continue gaining experience before (hopefully) returning to university to gain a doctorate in clinical psychology. Ultimately, I want to qualify as a clinical psychologist.
Currently, I enjoy writing articles on behalf of Dorset Mind on a range of different mental health topics. Dorset Mind has also provided the opportunity for me to use my own experience with mental health to support other people struggling with their mental health. Being a part of the charity is inspiring, as I get to see first-hand how hard people are working to support mental health and provide valuable services to those who need them.
