I first met Emma a couple of years ago through my work with mental health charities as an ambassador for Rethink Mental Illness and Sane and was immediately struck by her deep understanding of mental illness. As someone, like me, who has experienced mental illness but recovered, Emma is ideally placed to help others. Her writing, including her poetry, is profoundly sensitive and moving and has the ability to make others feel understood. She is also someone who uses social media to make a difference and help anyone afflicted by mental illness. I highly recommend working with Emma.
I have known Emma Wilson for a number of years in my capacity as Lay Representative for Horsham at Horsham and Mid Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group. She is intelligent and personable with good analytic skills. But she is also empathetic and well able to adapt easily to different working environments. She is very professional and extremely committed to her work in mental health and she communicates fluently both orally, on the written page and through social media.
