Carol Hill, Director of Catholic Care (Diocese of Leeds), was recently elected on to the Board of Trustees for Volition. This organisation is an umbrella body supporting Third Sector organisations with an interest in mental heal and wellbeing across the city of Leeds.
Volition represents over 100 organisations and links in strategically to ensure that the contribution, skills and experience of the Third Sector are able to play an active role in shaping the mental health services delivered in the city.
At Catholic Care, to reflect the personal nature of mental health, we offer a highly personalised range of services. These enable people to live full, independent lives as they progress along their journey of recovery. Our holistic approach is based on a personal commitment to each person’s recovery and takes into consideration their mental, physical and spiritual needs. In addition to helping them maintain good mental health, we provide practical assistance to enable each person to fund and manage their own homes.
Carol said: “1 in 4 of us are affected by mental health issues, yet this is still an area with such a negative stigma attached. I am delighted to be able to contribute to the shaping of services in Leeds which will hopefully have a positive impact on the lives of so many”.
