Libby is a medical doctor who specialised to become a consultant forensic psychiatrist. She is a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and has worked with children, young people and adults in a variety of different settings across communities.
Libby feels passionately about changing the way in which mental health problems are viewed and ultimately ensuring that wide ranges of professionals work together to ensure positive mental health and wellbeing across our communities. She strongly believes that through increasing the opportunity to identify mental ill health in its early stages, and thus provide appropriate intervention, the negative personal, social and economic outcomes which can be associated with mental health problems could be significantly reduced. With this in mind, she has diverted her skillset from acute mental health services to tackle the problem more fundamentally and focus on supporting our communities thrive.
