On Wednesday 20th March, we held our 46th Annual General Meeting (AGM) at The Moller Centre in Cambridge. Trustees, staff, volunteers and our local community came together to celebrate the successes highlighted in our 2017-18 Impact Report and to build on those achievements by launching a new organisational strategy: ‘Building on our strengths: for better mental health‘.
This presents a new vision, mission and six key goals which we seek to meet over a three year period between 2019-2021.
Our CEO, Aly Anderson, captures the essence of the strategy saying, “Co-producing this three year strategy has been such a rewarding and important project. I’m so excited and proud to have worked alongside everyone who has contributed to our strategy. All coming together, for better mental health.”
The AGM was also an opportunity to say a fond farewell to Jo Lucas as Chair of Board of Trustees and Charles Hewitson as President of CPSL Mind. We’d like to thank both Jo and Charles for their continued support over many years. Jo has been involved with local and national Mind for more than 30 years and played an important role in the development of our new strategy. We wish them both well for the future.
As a result of these departures, we also welcomed Stuart Jessup and Keith Evans into new roles. Stuart has been a trustee for many years and now takes up the role of Chair of Board of Trustees. Formally Vice-President, Keith Evans has stepped into the position of President of CPSL Mind. To view our up-to-date list of trustees click here.
We’d also like to thank everyone who contributed to and attended our AGM. Particularly Katie Wells – who shared her experiences of perinatal mental health, Katie Baker & Ben Anderson – who highlighted our Co-Production work, Isabel Cross – who shared the successes of STOP Suicide and Jo Clarke – who spoke about the impact of our Resilient Together project and Asset Based Community Development (ABCD).
