Mental Health Development Officer

Alison Mitchell

In late 2017 The Retreat Benevolent Fund appointed a part-time Mental Health Development Officer – Alison Mitchell. Her role is to give Quakers the information and the inspiration they need to discern their response to issues around mental health in our country today.

“I started work in October 2017 as the first Mental Health Development Officer, after three decades of work as a mental health social worker. I've been a Quaker for almost as long and I'm a member of Devon Area Meeting. I'm excited to be using my skills and experience in the service of my faith and to help Friends respond to the current crisis in mental wellbeing.”
