I worked for many years as a mental health professional with a particular interest in severe and enduring conditions. I was aware of the impact adverse life events such as sexual abuse had on mental wellbeing and this became a personal experience when a member of my family became ill as a result of domestic abuse. Contact with, and subsequent counselling, from the Birchall Trust marked a recovery turning point for both the victim and the rest of the family. As a result, I became a Trustee in 2018 to support the work done by the whole team and to further knowledge of the impact of sexual abuse on victims, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
