Mind in Somerset is governed by a non-executive board which oversees the direction and strategy of the charity. Board members serve on an unpaid, voluntary basis. 
The current board has diverse experience and skills which includes mental health, finance, IT, management and a range of other disciplines. More than half of the members of our board have lived experience of poor mental health.

However, we recognise that neither the Board nor our senior managers have a monopoly of wisdom of mental health matters. So, we are keen to have all our stakeholders participating in goal setting — sometimes simply with feedback, sometimes with a stake in the decision. In this way we hope that our staff and volunteers our funders and our service users will feel engaged and involved — that their voice matters.
