Prior to working with the Recovery Education Unit, Jenny was a mental health support worker for a number of years before completing her MSc in Psychology. Jenny has had her own mental health difficulties, experiencing periods of distress over the space of several years, however now manages this through diet and exercise and has learnt ways of coping should things start to spiral.

 

Jenny works as a recovery tutor, using her prior personal and work experiences to inform training around recovery. She aims to use her experiences to challenge stigma and spread an ethos of compassion for those with lived experience.
