JACQUI BAMFORD

LivingWorks Asist
Safetalk Trainer

 

I have lived mostly in Devon. All my adult life have been able to see Dartmoor. I trained as an SRN at 18 but in my 40’s graduated as an Occupational Therapist. Since then I have worked within MH for charities and the NHS.   I am passionate about improving everyone’s mental health especially by skilling up the community to reduce suicide, reduce stigma and to be able support each other at home, leisure activities and at work. I am an ASIST, SAFETALK Trainer and MHFA Trainer. I work for the NHS in supporting those with lived experience and carers to improve the MH service .
