About Helen

I am a senior research librarian specialising in mental health and wellbeing. I am passionate about improving communication, psycho-education, self efficacy and partnerships between individuals, health staff and services. I aim to empower people through providing access to reputable information and communicating fresh viewpoints in an innovative and creative way which often includes visual imagery.
