Ermias Alemu

Elected governor - staff

I have worked for nearly 25 years in mental health and social care settings (nearly 20 in NHS) with marginalised communities such as BAME groups, homeless people and people with drug & alcohol problems in both voluntary and statutory sectors. During these years, I was also involved in setting up and running a community mental health charity.
My experience includes:
- Promoted the Delivering Race Equality programme at the Commissioning Support for London, which led to an award of a clinical trailblazer project.
- Promoted the innovative approach of using films and arts to destigmatise attitudes towards mental health problems that led to many funding awards of the Happy Soul projects.
- Marketing the value of delivering psychological services in a culturally appropriate ways including choice of centres resulted in commissioning of provider sites BME communities.

I have regularly planned, designed and delivered training. Previously, I have taken a leading role in doing an internal audit of mental health services in the Trust.
I bring my rich and diverse knowledge, skills and experience to help the trust narrow the gaps between delivery of services and existing needs of the diverse community.
