My career is office based, my last employment was as a Personal Assistant to the Assistant Director of a charity for adults with learning disabilities for 8 years. I had to resign to care for my daughter.
I have been caring for my daughter (who from the age of 12 developed multiple mental health conditions) for the last 4 years, this has given me extensive knowledge and experience as a carer and health service user.

I also have a mental health condition, which I have had all my adult life. This has given me extensive knowledge of the issues, problems and situations which occur as a patient.
