Become a Trustee at Mental Health Resource.

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of local people with mental health conditions? We are looking for someone who can think strategically and complement the existing Board of Trustees.

What is Mental Health Resource?

Mental Health Resource is a small, well-established charity based in Tunbridge Wells. We deliver quality services across West Kent for people with mental health conditions to improve their mental wellbeing.  We do this by providing safe spaces and person-centred mental health support and every year we assist over 900 people who have complex, enduring mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and bi-polar. All our services focus on wellbeing and recovery. 

What is the role of a Trustee?

You would be working with other trustees who have different skills, knowledge and experience. It's an interesting role in which you can help formulate the ideas about how we, as an organisation, can best address the challenges and opportunities that exist in an increasingly complex and changing environment.

We would love to hear from you if you have a true interest in helping to improve the lives of those with mental health conditions, and especially if you have skills or experience in Finance, Fundraising, Marketing, Campaigning or the delivery of mental health services.

Further detailed information about the trustee role and person specification is available by clicking here.

No previous experience of being a trustee is necessary.

What is the commitment?

The main commitment as a trustee would be to attend and participate in six Board meetings per year which are held via Zoom in the morning and last 2-3 hrs.
