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 and 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."
