Emma joined the MHPN team, as a Project Officer, in 2022. Prior to this she held various roles in non-profit and local government organisations. She has an educational background in international relations and development, have travelled extensively and volunteered in Nepal, Mexico and the United States. She brings this perspective to her role, enjoying considering how to be most impactful by seeing things from a big picture perspective. Emma’s portfolio includes eating disorders and older persons mental health specific networks.  

Cat, dog or other? Clearly a dog person, Emma thinks the cat vs dog debate at MHPN is getting a little too intense.
