She is a medical doctor who specialised to become a consultant forensic psychiatrist. Libby 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 has maintained a longstanding interest in medical education and has obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Clinical Practice. 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 promote positive mental health, identify mental ill health in its early stages and 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. The outcome of this has been the development of Team Mental Health offering a ‘whole organisation’ approach to support the mental health and wellbeing of all.
